Bass sweeping
 
Does anybody know any good sites with beginner - intermediate bass sweeping lessons/techniques? Preferably beginner, as I have just recently become interested in bass sweeping and don't know anything about it at all.

Thanks in advance guys.

its the same as guitar sweeping, just use your thumb to strum the strings instead of a pick.

It's just arpeggios.

Yes, that's true. But as I said, I'm looking for techniques specifically for bass... I don't really know where to start.

Bass sweeping????? :eek:

Well, there is alot bass of sweeping in Necrophagist songs. But here are some clips I found on YouTube for you :

Man...sweeping was the only thing that made me pick guitar over bass. I'm gonna try to apply my sweep picking to my shitty bass playing.

Granted, those are sweeping and tapping but you can't deny he does both masterfully.

Valtiel 2007-07-23 15:39

Refer to the Sig, Adam Nitti FTW. That dude has some serious sweep skills.

I imagine it's harder on bass... but now I'm just stating the obvious lol.

I remember Alex Webster bass sweeping at Cannibal Corpse in April 2006 in Glasgow during the final chord-thrash-finale-thing. I was at the front in the middle, right in front of George and Alex at the time and all the camera phones I could see were trained on him. Such a good show... One of the few I enjoyed all the acts playing.
