This lesson focuses on the sweep picking style of the great Yngwie Malmsteen.Â His playing is known the world over for it's incredibly fast scale runs and sweep picked arpeggios. He completely changed the face of rock guitar when he came onto the music scene in the early 80's.
In this lesson we will focus on some of the arpeggio shapes that he uses to create his rapid arpeggio sequences. We will not only study WHAT they are but HOW to play them like he does.
In part two of this lesson series I will show you a little sweep picking etude in the style of Yngwie Malmsteen using these shapes.
If you have never done sweep picking before, the timing of both hands together may take a little getting used to. Make sure you watch the video enough times until you can mimic the right hand positioning. Pay particularly close attention to the right hand when I speed up the passages and try to imitate the very small amount of movement.
