    What Swede71 is working on :)

    Hi guys!Im working on arpeggioplaying ala Steve Morse.Very pianistic.I want to share with you forum members two examples of this style.Use a clean sound and play even eights with legato.Try using upstrokes on the higher notes and downstrokes on the lower notes.

    Code:
    e |----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
    B |------10--------|------7---------|------3---------|----3---2---0---|
    G |11----------9-11|7-----------6-7-|4---------------|----------------|
    D |----------------|----------4-----|------------2-4-|2-----2---2-----|
    A |----12----12----|----9---0-------|----5-----5-----|--0-----------0-|
    E |--10----9-------|--7-------------|--3-----2-------|----------------|da capo
       2 1 3 2 1 4 1 3  2 1 4 2   1 3 4  2 1 3 2 1 4 1 3  1   3 1 2 1

    ex2.

    We really need a video of you playing these. Just do a smart phone video, it will be good enough to get the point across.

    Years ago there was a few issues of Guitar World magazine which featured Steve Morse lessons. I have them buried away somewhere but I remember them being some of the best lessons I ever had. He would be such an awesome teacher. I'm currently working on getting example one from your first post up to speed. Thanks for posting!

    I'll have to give some of these a try, I have been in a bit of a rut and could use a fresh perspective.

    Participating in Doc's new thread should give me the knowledge to upload videos eventually, so it will be my pleasure to share some funky voicings with you! "Baby, I'm a Star" rides the line of what could be considered disco, so you may be in danger! Besides, that CU22 with soapys that you're rockin' is just made for funk and scratchy guitar lines.

    Hi guys!Tonight im working on hybrid picking,sweep picking and pentatonics over major7 chords.The progression is Dmaj7-Amaj7.I love the sound of the "rootless" pentatonic scale.Using the C#minor pentatonic over the D and A chord means you never target the root of both chords.The sweep arpeggios are Satch inspired from an old guitarplayer soundpagerecord.

    Code:
    e |12-------12---|4-------0---|
    B |10-------9----|5-------2---|
    G |--------------|------------|
    D |11-------9----|6-------2---|
    A |--------------|--------0---|
    E |10-------10---|5-----------|
    
    e |----------16-12----------|-------12-9--------|
    B |--------14-----14--------|-----10----10------|
    G |------11---------13------|----7--------9-----|
    D |----14-------------14----|--11----------11---|
    A |--12-----------------16--|-9--------------12-|
    E |10---------------------12|7-----------------9|
    
    e |--------------------9-12|
    B |----------------9-12----|
    G |------------9-11--------|
    D |--------9-11------------|
    A |----9-11----------------|
    E |9-12--------------------|

    I don't know what I would do musically with the knowledge and ability to do sweep picking, but it is something I have always wanted to learn. The combination of a light picking hand and the ability to choke the unwanted sustain from the passing tones is something I fear I will never be able to get down.
