8 Finger Tapping

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Monday, March 18, 2013, In : 8 Finger Tapping 


One of the very important elements in playing 8 finger tapping is to be able to play it without having the surrounding strings buzz making it sound awful in general. When I go from one string to another I make sure that I lower my right hand palm to damp the strings as much as possible. Good luck !

Sweep Picking Harmonic Minor Sixth Mode

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Sunday, March 17, 2013, In : sweep picking 


This Major seventh arpeggio fits the sixth step in the Harmonic Minors scale as well as it fith the first and fourth position in the Major scale.Regarding the sixth mode in the Harmonic Minor scale it is called the Metropolitan scale but using a simple four note arpeggio only calls for a Major seventh arpeggio even though the scale itself has a raised ninth. Good luck !

Sweep Picking Etude

Sweep Picking Etude


This little symphony of Sweep Picking arpeggios consists of a few different elements than the obvious sweep picking triads. The second arpeggiosI play is a E7 when I both play the seventh on the G string and on the high E string. And between the E dominant arpeggio and A minor triad I play a few Pentatonic style legato phrases and here you need to be aware of adjusting the index finger to be able to move into the A minor triad in order to be able to cover both the high E st...

Thats what I call a shred guitar players wet dream ! playing extreme shred guitar in front of a large crowd - beautifull !!

Economy Picking Arpeggio

Economy Picking Arpeggio


In this arpeggio I play a variety of economy picking and sweep picking. All the ascending part is economy picking and the descending part is mostly sweep picking but also some economy picking concepts are used

Economy Picking   
The economy picking technique has a few concepts that you pretty much cant derive from without using a new technique

1. Even number of notes to change direction

2. Odd number of notes to stay in the same direction

3. The picking technique directs th...

Sweep Picking Dominant Flat 9

Sweep Picking Dominant Flat 9

This arpeggio is quite a stretch because here we actually have a five note sweep picking arpeggio and we actually play three notes per string on a few strings using hammer on ´s and pull off´s and you can use it from the fifth position in the Harmonic Minor scale. Good luck !

Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Dominant Arpeggio

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Tuesday, March 12, 2013, In : sweep picking 
Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Dominant Arpeggio

This sweep picking arpeggio can be used from the fifth step in the Harmonic Minor scale. It can actually also be used from the fifth step in the Major scale, in the Melodic Minor scale you can use it both from the fourth and fifth step. Take key to the specific fingering that im using in the video. I think it leverages the possibility to increase the speed as fast as possible. Good luck !

Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Arpeggio 4

This sweep picking arpeggio is minor 7 and fits the fourth mode of the Harmonic Minor scale. It can also easily be used in the Major scale from the second, third and sixth mode in the Major scale. It also really cool if you are searching for a new sound instead of the triads. Good luck

Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Arpeggio 3

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Saturday, March 9, 2013, In : sweep picking 
Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Arpeggio 3

This lovely sweep picking fits the third mode in the Harmonic Minor scale which is Major seven with the raised fifth. But I also add a four finger per string legato phrase on the high E string which then in turn adds the nine and the eleventh to the arpeggio, so the only note missing for it to become a thirteenth and then having all the notes of the scale is the G sharp, you could add it with a tap if you like. Good luck !

Harmonic Minor Sweep Picking Arpeggio 2

This arpeggio is a Bminor seven flat five and it requires a bit of a unusual fingering and a few extra hammer on´s and pull off´s but nothing some practicing sessions with a metronome cant fix. It fits the second mode of the Harmonic minor scale as well as the seventh mode of the Major scale. Good luck !

Sweep Picking Exotic Arpeggio 6

This arpeggio is really crazy, it pertains both the sharp ninth and the flat ninth, its actually a major arpeggio ut starts as a minor. You could also see it as a combination of two different arpeggios or it could also be seen as a Duble Harmonic Minor scale. Good luck !

Sweep Picking Exotic Arpeggio 3

This arpeggio is composed from the first position of the Melodic minor and gets that cool kind of whole tone scale sound between the fourth the fifth, natural sixth and raised seventh. Again you have to work on using three fingers from the picking hand for tapping. Good luck

Sweep Picking Secret Arpeggios 1

Hey Fellas ! Im starting a saucy series of Secret Arpeggios. The reason I call them something like that is because they are arpeggios that are very unusual, from Exotic scales among others, some of them contains pretty much all the notes of the scale that gives it the specific sound. And the other reason is because I like the drama there is in calling something "Secret" So instead of dwelling anymore on this, lets get to the important stuff.... Learning to util...

Sweep Picking Arpeggios Contemporary

Here is a cool sweep picking arpeggio that sort of evolves into to a larger sweep picking arpeggio using slide effects that really adds something cool to the overall sound. Make sure that the large number of hammer ons and pull offs during the sweep picking pattern does not throw off the timing, evidently practicing with a metronome helps solve these kind of issues. Good luck !

Sweep Picking Inversions Minor

Posted by Niels Vejlyt on Friday, March 1, 2013, In : sweep picking 


About
This is yet again a really cool way to play through the minor arpeggios horizontally instead of the typical vertical way. It does take a quite specific fingering so take not to the fingering I use and see if that fits your hand and if not be sure to make up your own and stay with that until you reach the speed you want in this lick. Good luck !
