    What am I learning?

    I've decided to attempt the fine art of sweep picking.

    'Tis not for the faint of heart.

    Wish me luck!

    Sweep picking is something i can't quite get, i remember on one recording long ago I managed to accidently do it 3 consecutive times while improvising. One of those moments where my heart was really in it and my fingers just took off. Wasn't anything too technical, just three notes per sweep. but to me it was magic at that moment. Never been able to do it again. I'll just to very fast hammer ons and pull offs to compensate and then I end up sounding a lot like Zakk Wylde lol!

    Working on this, it really impressed me when I first heard it years ago. The easily recognizable parts arnt that bad to play either.

    Nice! Love that 2000s garage alt rock stuff, great fun to jam!

    I learned a bunch of jack white as I first picked up the guitar, and I still play it
