I thought I might as well start practicing to be a faster lead guitarist and maybe try to get sweep picking down, so I started practicing and studying Frank Gambale’s “Speed Picking. Normally when I solo, depending on which direction I’m going, I’ll do down picking or regular alternate picking. His style of picking is like alternate picking except that instead of being consistently down up down up down up like alternate, it depends on whether you’re changing strings or not and which direction you’re going, and could be down up down down up down up down up up down up up down down up down.

My fingers feel really really weird.

Any advice on the fastest way to get used to this? I suppose I’m supposed to just play this to a metronome and go faster and faster, but from what speed to what speed?

And in what increments? He explains how everything works and gives lots of examples which could work as exercisesbut he doesn’t say anything about how to go about learning everything or getting used to it, etc. NarenApr 5, MichaelApr 5, I think Economy picking is the best gambqle But Gambale is very rigid with it, sticking to the up 3 up 3 up 2 down 3 type of Ideas. Try a less strict pickjn, simply when ascending up to higher strings, use a down pick. When descending, use a fambale pick. This way you don’t have to stick to his strict 3 3 2.


Try this; too lazy to put into a tab. E string 8 10 12 A 8 10 12 D 9 10 12 G 9 10 12 B 10 12 13 e 10 12 13 For a turn around, e 10 12 13 12 10 Then go backwards from before. S-OApr 5, Well, I was thinking of learning this to use for faster soloing and sweeping pikcin then use pikin alternate picking for more normal solos and regular arpeggios. I’m not exactly sure, but Gambale’s method seems very indepth and effective. Gambaale I wanted to learn from Cooley, how would I go about that?

I’d need an indepth book or something. Well, obviously being able to do it both ways is the best, but you know how it goes I took a look at that site. The one you’re referring to is Volume The Art of Picking, right?

Or a different one? So they ship to Singapore? They’d ship to Japan too? I noticed he also has “Shred Guitar Manifesto,” no pckin what this video covers.

Not sure if they deliver to Japan or not. And if they do, not sure what I’d get or whether it’d be over my head or not.

I mean, Rusty Cooley is like a bazillion times better than me, so it might not be helpful to me at all. Thanks for the advice. I’m still practicing right now. Regarding the use of a metronome, I use and teach what Steve Morse had to say about it.

Get every single Rusty Cooley video. Basic training, which I don’t have, may be a great start towards his other videos. Shred Guitar Manifesto has the Legato work out, for devolping left hand strength and stretches; and a section for legto, picking, and sweeping each with licks. Extreme Pentatonics goes into The main idea of it is 3 nps and 4 nps pentatonic ideas.

He shows a great way for visualizing the fretboard. The Art of Picking is about This goes from ‘basic’ if you will call what Pickiin does spded 3 nps, to crazy 4 nps ideas. The two performance clinic DVD’s are cool too, I suggest buying the others first. I am going to try to buy Basic Training to see if it is as great as the others are, which it most likely is.


MattyCakesApr 5, NarenApr 6, Just a bit of encouragement Eric – stick with pickn It’s totally worthwhile franl. I also gave Gambales stuff a shot many years ago and gave up and stuck to Gilberts alternate-picking style.

But years later a friend showed me how fluidly he could do the sweeping and so I decided to give it another shot.

Took me about two years to feel comfortable with it, but now it’s totally incorporated into my playing.

I can play much much quicker while only using a fraction of the physical effort that is needed for strict alternate picking. I’d recommend focusing on rhythmic consistency. Every time sped sweep from one string to the next your picking hand has to suddenly slow to half the speed of your regular alternating strokes.

Slowing down the picking hand accurately without rushing the sweep is one of the hardest things. If the subdivisions of the beat are not played very accurately and with a relaxed motion then don’t speed up until it’s clean. DureroApr 6, Hi there i guess Durero spells it all out.
