Sweeping with Rusty Cooley
A lesson in sweep picking from the shred maestro
This is a G major arpeggio sequence divided into four sections. Using the third, fourth and fifth strings the sweep-picked patterns are in one position followed by a five-string sweep across two positions. Pay close attention to the fingering as these licks are not conventional - make sure you follow the picking suggestions and any hammer-ons and pull-offs.
