Title: Arpeggio Sweep Tab Thread (Guitar)
Post by: Jack Lupino on November 20, 2006, 06:59:04 pm
Post all your tabs on sweeps here, i'd reckon ill put in the most simple and obvious ones myself.
The goal of this thread is to enrich guitarists with new material and new insights to guitar sweeping.

The 5 String Arpeggio Sweep.


E
A 5-h8--------8-5
D ----7-------7--
G -----7-----7---
B ------6---6----
E --------5------


This is basically a pretty standard sweep, it might be a bit tricky when you're starting to sweep, but after you get it in your muscle memory, it shouldn't be too hard.

E
A 5-h8-----------8-5
D ----7----------7--
G -----7--------7---
B ------6------6----
E -------5h8p5-----


Okay. This one is a bit harder, because you're using your pinky twice in the sweep. That requires effency and speed somewhat.
Nothing extreme, but with some timing you should be able to pull it off.

The 5 String Arpeggio Sweep with the pinky and the tap.


E
A 5-h8----------------8-5
D ----7---------------7--
G -----7-------------7---
B ------6-----------6----
E -------5h8t12p8p5-----


This one gave me a lot less problems than i expected. The trick with this one is (for me, that is) just sweep over your neck of the guitar, so the distance is shorter. Then from there just keep it slow and start increasing the distance between the tap and the place where you're holding your plectrum when you're sweeping.

NOTE : Tap note may vary.

Ok here are some three string sweeps.


Three String Sweep A


E
A
D
G -----7--------7---
B ------6------6----
E -------5h8p5-----


This one is just basically like the 5 string, but the first 2 strings kept away. And yes, ofcourse you can add a tap, im not going to tab that one out. ;)

Three String Sweep B


E
A
D
G -----5--------7---
B ------6------6----
E -------5h6p5-----

The pink hammer on changed from 6 to 8

Three String Sweep C


E
A
D
G -----5--------5---
B ------6------6----
E -------5h8p5-----


Just play this slowly, i can't do this one reallyyy fast because you need to play

G5 - Index finger
B6 - Middle finger
E5 - Index finger
E8 - Hammer on pink

And go back, so you're using your index finger a LOT.


I know some more, but i'll leave it here.

If someone has questions about a certain sweep, ill be willing to record a vid and explain it.

Open Powertab>File>Export>HTML File [this produces tab in text format]

or...

Open Powertab>Section>Output as Bitmap>To File... [to save tab as a Bitmap image. Only works one section at a time tho, it seems =/]

Ok, here we go! I tried to change the extension to .jpg as Lysix suggested, do remember to change it back to .ptb before you open it!  ;D -Oh, and you need Powertab editor to open the files.

Digit Zero is a new tune I recorded recently, it has a pretty wicked sweeping sequence which is the one I've tabbed out here.

The sweepsheet is just a mess of random sweeping patterns i made for a student. If you play it in powertab it'll just run you through all of the patterns one after the other, and none of it will make sense. It works like this: with every tempo change in the tab there's a new pattern, that's how you should divide the exercises. All of the patterns presented here are pretty basic exercises that should work well as a sort of introduction to the easier side of the sweeping techniques.

Enjoy!

Bleh... Didn't work.  :P
Instead, here's a rough text rendition of the Digit Zero tab. As you may notice, it has a few of those good old hammer-on/pull-off stunts, the rest of the notes are to be picked sweep picking style. For instance, you're supposed to start the whole thing with a down stroke (16) then an up stroke (12) then another up stroke (14) etc. etc. If you play it that way the picking pattern will pretty much reveal it self as you go on. Have fun!  ;)

-And here's the sweepsheet. Remember, the various patterns are to be divided wherever a tempo change is marked. The last one (Q=105) is definitely the hardest one to play, and It's really a prerequisite of the Digit Zero-thing. Knock yourself out!!  ;D

Wow, I found these a huge help. Especially because I happened to find these just as I was starting to learn sweep picking! (As in I had just looked up the word and had turned on the internet to find some videos and tabs, and I saw this).

Thanks!

I've been learning this simple 4 string sweep, just practiced it with a metronome, i can get upto 208bpm :D


  E |-----------12-12----------|
  B |--------13-------13-------|
  G |-----14------------14-----|
  D |--15------------------15--|
  A |--------------------------|
  E |--------------------------|


I also learnt another one, which is the exact opposite of this.

  B |--------14-------14-------|
  G |-----13------------13-----|
  D |--12------------------12--|

I can join these two together, too.
