Yay! Stupid Questions!
 
Most of you are going to think why I'm even here, well stick with me. I've gotten a sudden interest to improve my guitar playing, and I wanna know what some things are. What are sweeps and scales? What do I do to practice them, and what are they for? Also, how would I go about increasing my speed?

To practice them you move your fingers. and they are for making noises.

Solos are what you use sweeps and scales for
Scales are modal mixtures of music (i guess?)

Practice alot, thats how you increase speed

maybe try the official sweepr scale thread there should be plenty of explanations already i think :D

anyway sweeping us usualy a arpeggio (a chord with some extra note that u plat note by note down the strings (or up)

anyway i dont feel lik eexplaining just now
maybe later ;)

Sweep picking is a technique, a scale is a concept.

A "scale" is a means of going from one note to another, and this will establish a pattern. In order for it to be a "scale" this pattern must repeat itself.

"Sweeping" is a technique : Your pick hand "sweeps", a very relaxed strumming of individual notes.

Sweep picking is non-esential, but scales are pretty elementary if your writing stuff or improvising.

yea^^^, i agree with him... :rolleyes:

northerndragon 2005-05-24 20:07

sweeps are like chords, but they are played all in a downstroke and your fingers move with the downstroke to make a unique sound. scales are used to determine key for example

the notes of C D E F G A B C make the C Major Scale, if you're using those notes you're in the key of C Major.

itll probably be a while before you can solo, i suggest learning some theory.

h4x5k8 2005-05-24 22:55

sweeps are neccisarily chords, there shapes, and they have upstrokes to.

ok sweeping is basicaly breaking up the notes in chords and indiviudally picking them in a "sweeping" of the fretboard, and scales are variations of notes in a run... all in key. and my suggestion in increasing speed try oatmeal... and cracking your fingers trim your nails and watch robot chicken... that show is great.

sweeping is a righthand (ur picking hand) technique where u pick the strings either up or down...as opposed to alternate picking where u pick up down up down etc...u really have to see it to fully get the grasp of it
i see alot of posters comparing sweeping to chords...thats not quite right, sweeping is the righthand technique, and only that.
if ur sweeping a chord u are arppegiating (not sure how to spell that word) the chord by making the notes sound seperatly as opposed to letting them ring all togheter
so playing the chord as an arpegio means letting the notes sound seperat, as opposed to letting them ring togheter, to do this u can use the sweeping technique...witch is what most ppl do, but u dont have to....some players like steve morse play alternate picking on arpegios

scales are a collection of notes...it can be all notes on ur fret, like the chromatic scale or one that has only five notes....feks a five note scale starting on the e string u would incoporate all e`s on the fret in that scale...and if the scale has A in it, u play all A`s to...what notes ur actually playing depends on what scale ur playing....most ppl start with the pentatonic scale (penta meaning five (notes))

playing scales is by the way a great way of increasing ur speed

You need to stop resurrecting dead threads with useless bull shit. Look at the dates of the last post! Most or these people have died in drinking related accidents years ago. They will never read your new post. You have been doing shit like this for a week now. Respect the dead. Bring something actually useful to these old threads or let them die.

Do I need to explain it any simpler?

Nice mod work, wannabe.

Are you picking at me? You little fucking hypocrite! You like to talk about thread stalking and believing everyone here is out to "get you" somehow, but then you pull some shit like this. You must be mildly retarded.

Leave it in the RTT. I only fuck with you there so please show some intelligence, respect, and a since of humor. I got no real beef with you, get it? If you take shit this serious then you have to be borderline EMO.

But since you want a Bar BQ'

I gave a suggestion in this thread, so piss on you for calling me a mod. What judgment do I or you have to pass on this forum? I know a punk fuck like you when I see it. What good do you have here anyway? All you do is insult others with juvenile comments, think you own the GPC threads, and tattle on people from other sites? I think you suck AndrewC's asshole. He was banned and was forced to leave here with Homo stamped everywhere on his way out. Tell him I said that too. Both of you have to squat to piss you're such fucking bitches. How does that make you feel. I really want to hear how it is to be fucking dirt like you. I really do! It is all you will ever be. It makes me sad you have to try and be such a hard ass all the time. What the hell are you proving? I used to actually like you. What the fuck happened to you or am I just wasting my time with asking?

BTW: If we lived closer I might one day teach your ass ;)
