Extreme Sweep Picking 8 Finger Tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, November 1, 2018, In : sweep picking 8 finger tapping 


Technique
This is sweep picking combined with 8 finger tapping and to be able to do this properly you have to learn and master the technique where I slide the pick up the thumb using my index finger, this movement enables you to use all four fingers on each hand to do the 8 finger tapping technique. This is obviously not an easy technique but its a technique I developed many years ago to combine those two wonderfull techniques, sweep picking and 8 finger tapping

Theory
The way you can implement ...

Ionian #5 sweep picking arpeggio

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Wednesday, October 24, 2018, In : Sweep Picking Tapping 


Technique
This is a combination of the Sweep Picking technique and the multi finger tapping technique, but also I play a four notes per string legato pattern on the high E string with my fretting hand and then I tap using the long finger and the ring finger and still keeping the pick between the thumb and index finger

Theory
This arpeggio is very specific so it can mainly be used from the sixth step of the Harmonic minor scale

How to practice
If you by any chance already feel relatively comfortabl...

Dorian Extreme Tapping Omit Seven

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Thursday, September 27, 2018, In : extreme tapping 


About
So this technique is actually the same we make us of as the Major scale Extreme Tapping lick we did last time, we just change the major third into a minor third and this way get the Dorian scale except for the seventh note of the scale but other than that its the same fingering I make use of and the same technique

Technique
This technique is something I invented because I wanted to use as many fingers as possible for tapping but still keeping the pick between my index finger and thumb. Th...

Advanced stunt sweep picking tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, September 18, 2018, In : Sweep Picking Tapping 


About
Here is one of my all time favorites, I have been using this lick and alikes for many years now, both for improvising and composed solos since the early nineties. So here I will give the technique to you

Theory
This row of arpeggios is three different inversiens of A minor, its triads and then I add some extra notes using multi finger tapping, the notes being E, G and A in the first inversion which is just the seventh added to the sweep picking triad arpeggio. then the next inversion mak...

About
Hey hey ! here is the first new blog post since my old website was hacked and destroyed. As you may know this is the new url where things are going down from now on. I wanted to congratulate that all the old blog posts are up and running again and now with this latest addition to the blog posts you'll get a very short and sweet lick addressing both Sweep picking tapping and my crazy Cross hand technique. Obviously this is not something that is easy to use in improvising and therefore I ...

Sweep picking 8 finger tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, March 27, 2015, In : sweep picking 8 finger tapping 


About
Merry Christmas everyone, heres my little Christmas present for you, it's a Sweep picking 8 Finger Tapping lick which obviously takes a lot of getting used to, but the real reason I make these videos with quite advanced licks is because even though they take a lot of focus and practice I experience that they really inspire in general to play and practice more. Of course if you are a beginner you will also need some more beginner stuff to practice to get some faster results and successes....

Extreme Guitar

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, March 20, 2015, In : stunt guitar 


About
I think we can all agree that this extreme guitar lesson is totally and completely over the top. It features a variety of techniques such as Sweep Picking, Legato, tappin and 8 finger tapping and three and four notes per string patterns. I guess you can also see and here that its highly improvised and that is the reason that I did not slow it down. I basically play a E minor sweep picking pattern and the first time I do it I add a four notes per string on the high E string played legato ...

Extreme Tapping Major Arpeggio

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, March 15, 2015, In : extreme tapping 


About
Its Shred Guitar time again. Here is a really awesome tapping pattern that I have been using for quite some years but I expanded it with a few more notes... what a bonus. Its one of those techniques where its pretty difficult to damnp the strings while you play because you need to tap with several fingers on low and high strings, so to make it juuuust perfect I sometimes use the neck pickup to kill the noise if I need to. For example a live situation where feel less confident than when s...

Stunt Guitar 2

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, March 15, 2015, In : stunt guitar 


About
Here is a new 8 finger tapping lick that is another way of doing eight finger tapping than I normally do it. Its a little inspired from TJ Helmerich who I would say actually use the Right hand in general 75 procent more than the left hand when he is soloing. The first thing of difficulty that comes to mind is the individual work of the right hand fingers since the first pattern the right hand is doing is almost all on different strings. What I found especially challenging was the part wh...

This is a highly advanced technique I invented years ago where I add Tapping sort of behind the fretting hand, for lack of a better name I call it theCross Hands technique. Added is a sweet Sweep picking Dominant Arpeggio I invented too, I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do
