Whatev.
Right...in real life I go around all the time preaching the wonders of sweep picking to the unenlightened I meet on the streets

This is a thread about sweep picking, and I'm simply speaking to the topic at hand. My apologies for actually contributing

"Excuse me sir, have you heard about the wonders of sweep picking?"

Mmmm.

I have this friend/aquantence/fellow guitar player I have know for 18 years or so. I saw him yesterday and he sat and went through his entire routene which is all classical based but still quite broad with his little twists and turns. Hes working hard on arpegios in the midst of it. Quite an impressive player with sickening natural skill. One day I have to get a recording of him doing his thing, its really shocking and mind boggling. He just never had the dedication or ambition/desire to put it to work for himself. In that field of harmonic minor, arpegios, fast precise alternate picking, with some hamer ons I honestly feel hes as skilled as most of the best and no he is not a Yngwie clone, heavily inspired tonally but has his own thing going on. I dont even think he learned much of Yngwies stuff.

you guys best be trolling, these guys just sweep pick for the sake of sweep picking, they can't even phrase properly when NOT sweep picking lol.
just listen to frank gambale for musical use of economy picking (cleaner and more tasteful too, and harder since he just doesn't sweep arpeggios)

Gambale has to be the only one still impressing me with sweep picking.

I'm not sure about this... I think I'd have to go with Shawn Lane.
