Sweep Picking Sorcery

Trust Badge

Do you know a lot of arpeggios, scales and licks but feel really insecure about how to actually use them?
Have you been practicing sweep picking forever but still aren't sure how to apply it fluently when you play?
If you said yes to either of these questions Sweep Picking Sorcery will help to eliminate both of these problems and significantly raise the level of your sweep picking technique along the way.


Hi, my name is Nick and I want to warmly welcome you to Sweep Picking Sorcery. When I first began to learn sweep picking it was the mid-1980's and Yngwie (J.) Malmsteen had come on the guitar scene with a whole new classically based vocabulary, and he played licks that sounded more like violin virtuoso Niccolo Paganini than any guitarist we had heard before.  Something that baffled me was how Yngwie played these incredibly fast and fluid arpeggios that sounded like liquid fire! I came to find out the technique being used to play these arpeggios was called sweep picking and I began my quest to learn and conquer the technique so I could play like my heroes. 


I can finally sweep, but now what??

After many months in the woodshed my sweeping skills had gotten pretty good, but now I had a new problem; I couldn't figure out how to actually use and apply the skills I had developed. Sure, I could play my sweeping arpeggio exercises pretty well, but they just sounded like uninspired exercises when I tried playing them over my favorite songs. What was I missing?


"We only get good at what we practice.”

What I needed was a practice system of applying my vocabulary of sweep picking ideas, shapes and patterns to real music. And I needed some fresh inspiration so I could break out of my worn out licks that I'd been rehashing for ages. Well, I never did find a practice system like that, so I did what any pimple faced wanna be shredder would do: I created my own system! In all seriousness, I did create my own way, but it took a long time. The good news for you is that it doesn't have to take you that long.
After teaching and playing professionally for many years, I kept seeing the same struggles for many players when it came to sweep picking, so I finally decided to do something about it. The result is my new course you are looking at now, Sweep Picking Sorcery.

This is the course I wish I would have had when I was struggling to apply my skills. The truth is that there are many methods and lessons out there that can teach you how to sweep, but virtually none that show you ways to apply sweeping to your own playing, in a step by step way, with inspiring licks, jam tracks and invaluable tips that I have learned over the years and applied myself in my own playing.

In fact, I use these same methods with my private students, and I've actually applied the results of using these methods myself, with my bands Q5, FireWolfe and in my solo material. I'm very excited to offer you this course now because I really believe it's going to help you, and bring you years of joy in your playing, as you begin to feel the excitement and freedom of effortlessly sweeping and making music with your new skills!
