Practicing Sweeps to Not Ready To Die

As I mentioned since I started to pay more attention to my sweeping technique I had to decrease the tempo a lot to focus on hand synchronisation. And as @Millie Imber and @Cedric L suggested I therefore learned the intro sweeps from Not Ready To Die by A7x.

My main focus here was hand relaxation, a more loose grip and tilting the pick.
Damn my dude, look at you go!! Really nice work! As Alicia mentioned, you do look really relaxed and that vibrato is just amazing! Also, you're doing a much, much better job of practising it than I did with setting a good, comfortable tempo and sticking with itm so you're gonna get this in no time! 🤘

Thank you so much! This is less me trying to learn the song though but more just some general sweep practice. I am way too lazy to tune to drop d for the rest of the song and it's just not the same on the Flying V haha. But the sweeps further down the neck are a lot of fun too!

That's totally fair, it's a great song to practice sweeping to, that's for sure! I know that feeling all too well, and you can get a lot done with just that small section which I love! The riff section after the intro is a tough stretch but awesome if you can pull it off! Keep going!!

I was surprised how easy that stretch was for me! It's probably cause it's a rather slow sweep so you have some time to get your finger in position! I mean, I can't play it perfectly, especially the muting gets me, but it's okay.

Sounding great man! one thing I'd work on is when you're sweeping, to treat it as one continuous down stroke, instead of down picking each note in the arpeggio. It's tricky to get but you'll get there :LOL:
