Watch the 50 Sweep Licks online guitar lesson by Bruce Arnold from 50 Sweep Picking Guitar Licks You Must Know

If we generalize melodic movement on the guitar, it is either by "step" or "skip." Step playing is done with scales, and skip playing is done with arpeggios and sweeps. That’s why the ability to sweep pick fluidly is an important part of your technical development, as it enables you to play cleanly at very high tempos. Playing by skip places specific demands on your picking hand. We will concentrate on 6 string sweeps in this course and the techniques you learn from this will set your skip playing on the right path. There are some hurdles to get over at first, but once you develop some basic sweep picking skills you will be well on your way. I will go into greater depth about each of the sweeps we cover and there is a PDF for each sweep in each segment of this course. I've also included a PDF that gives you the fingering for all the sweeps in one document so that you can see them all at a glance.
