Peter Vandenberg Man i can't thank you enough for what you and papa gates have put together. Ive never had a formal lesson. Ive learned techniques primarily from youtube "how to videos" or just by doing covers. It blows my mind how in-depth this is and how much ground it covers! Answered so many questions I had with sweeping already!

Gerben Hey, just curious, how long have you been playing for? I'm gettin' my first guitar in a few days and I plan to be self-taught too. And how much progress have you made? Thanks 😀

Joe Giumarello I know exactly where you're coming from! It's hard to do, but for me it's sort of a rolling motion when barring. That way when your finger rolls it lifts of the one string, mutes it, and the next string rings out. I hope that makes sense. It's a tough technique when sweeping fast.
