I really like the sweeping technique. Dan Mumm offers a lot of tutorial and exercices. I bought the Sweep picking mastery bundle and it has some very challenging stuff. https://sellfy.com/danmumm

Here is an exemple on songter:

Very fun to play. Here is the song at full speed with backing track:
Are you advertising here?

Like is that really what the post is about at a free online theory school? Lol

Wish you saw these videos before man you could a saved yourself money
Yes I would not have bought the Dan Mumm stuff.
I think that Papa Gates gives a better explanation.
No advertising, I only want to share my learning path.

Man I shit you not I have been working on this for the last two hours and it’s 3am. These are the lessons I have needed to take my playing to the next level for sure. Nothing perfect by any means but by barred sweeps are getting better. I swear when I was first learning how to sweep I did everything I could to avoid barring because I hated it. These exercises definitely improve my willingness to bar and give a clear cut explanation of how Syn (and obviously Brian Sr.) have mastered these techniques.

    Anyone have any suggestions for getting my fingers stretched out? I see a lot of guitar players who can move through their fretboard with ease as if they're barley even trying. Me on the other hand I have to damn near do the splits with my fingers just to reach certain notes 😭

    Theres some exercises you can do, to limber your fingers up, but when it comes down to it, theres 1 word. Practice. Play it slow, build up speed, walk before you run, all that stuff. Incorporate your pinky, find exercises for finger independence, practice scales (The major Scale) and just do it. There’s no trick, no shortcut, just like getting good at anything you gotta do it man!
