No modal stuff I think, just straightforward sweepage of major / minor / dim etc... I dont really think like: okey so im in Dmin and this is IVth chord so yeah, it should sound just like this ... I just sweep it and admire the result
Since you junkies dont have gpro 5 i should probably just post some tablature print screens. Hang on
Alright all of these are played really fast on records, BUT you should start playing them slow. Practice an example (or a small section of it) a bit without metronome, so your fingers will remember the pattern(s). After that try to push some speed out of your fingers, and then take the metronome and practice very accurately, begin at very slow tempo and increase in 1 bpms, to begin with at least. Also since you asked, some of these shapes will be accompanied by other techniques, like alternate picking. These examples are tabbed out for a guitar with each string tuned down 1 step. But you can just play them as it is, doesnt really matter unless youare going to play it along the record
Wintersun - Winter madness Some alt picking in the end...
More Winter Madness Shapezilla, bars number 8 and 9 are played legato, with highest notes tapped.
Children of Bodom - Downfall Take care of position shifts in this one, and try to keep timing even.
Children of Bodom - Kissing the Shadows Sounds very funky if some speed is applied
Wintersun - Beyond the Dark Sun Diminished shapes in this one can give you some hell in the beginning, but give it some time and they will feel very natural. The proper picking of this diminished shape is from Joel's masterclass on sweep picking.
Extract from Bach's Toccata and Fugue in Dminor ;D
Nightwish - Sacrament of Wilderness Not a very common way of picking sweeps, still if you can get it up to some speed it will sound pretty cool. Couldnt be bothered with rearranging the alt picking run in the end
Wintersun - Beautiful Death A long, weird and boring sweep to practice, its much better to practice it in small sections. Sounds extremely nice on record at full speed
Children of Bodom - Hate Crew Deathroll Have some fun tapping
Children of Bodom - Towards Dead End Melodic shit
And again Bodom - Deadnight Warrior More melodic shit
Have fun, and check out Joel's masterclass on sweeping or post here if you have any questions!
