About this lesson
This lesson contains a few exercises you can use to teach your student sweep picking. Use this material along with TEC-06 Sweep Picking and you'll have everything you need to teach the basics of the technique. These exercises focus on simple arpeggios across three strings. Once your student can easily play these arpeggios they can then move on to learn arpeggios across four or more strings. The whole idea with these exercises is to get your student used to the picking motion. Most beginners have trouble adjusting how they use the pick when playing sweep picking. The included lesson instructions will help you explain the proper technique.
