How To Play Awesome & Creative Sweep Picking Arpeggio Licks On Guitar

Wish you could play badass sweep picking arpeggios, but your arpeggios sound like lifeless exercises at best? Many guitarists search for tons of new arpeggio licks to try to solve this problem, but never do and end up becoming very frustrated with their playing.

Here's the good news: playing awesome sounding arpeggios for guitar does NOT require learning countless new patterns and licks. Instead, you simply need to learn how to creatively play the arpeggios you already know. Plus, it's very easy (and fun) to do. Watch this video and I'll show you how:

Now that you know how to improve your arpeggio playing, the next step is to transform the rest of your musical skills. 

I'm talking about:

- other important guitar techniques (sweep picking, string skipping, legato), 

- your musical knowledge (so you understand why the music you like sounds good to you).

- your musical ear (so you can hear music in your head and play it immediately)

- your phrasing (so every single note you play drips with fire and emotion).

When you are fluent at all these skills – you stop being “just a guitar player”. 

You become a real musician!

And guess what: 

I can help you with this in my Breakthrough Guitar Lessons.

They are not some one-size-fits-all cookie-cutter course.

Instead: I create personalized guitar lessons specifically for you to help you transform your guitar playing.

Here is how it works:

First, you’ll fill out a long evaluation from – telling me everything about your musical skill level, guitar playing background, previous lesson experience (if any) and of course…

… your short & long-term musical goals.

From there, I go to work for you. 

I study your evaluation from in detail and I create a lesson plan for reaching your goals, based on what you tell me about yourself.

Next, I design a lesson strategy for you for the next 3-6 months and put together your actual lesson materials. 

Your lesson materials are your actual exercises, drills and etudes that develop your skills and help you reach your goals. 

All you need to do is practice what I tell you. 

And the beauty is:

You don’t need to practice 8 hours per day to become a great guitar player. 

Most of my guitar students practice 30-60 minutes per day. Obviously the more you practice, the better. But even if you practice just 30 minutes per day, you can make a surprising amount of progress.

In between the lessons, I give you a ton of support to help you absorb and practice your lessons.

You can get help and support from me, by: 

  • Attending weekly office hours (where you can ask me questions and get help from me live on video). I go live on Zoom every week and make myself available to you and my other students, to answer your questions. 
  • Attending live classes that I do every month. In these classes, I take the hardest guitar playing topics and break them down to make them easy to understand and master. Plus, it’s another opportunity for you to ask me questions. 
  • Sending me feedback about each lesson. This way I know exactly how you are progressing and can answer your questions when you are stuck on something.
  • Sending me recordings of your playing for feedback. This tells me how well you are progressing and shows me what you need the most help on. 
  • Asking me questions when you get stuck. (You can email me anytime day or night.)
  • Updating your guitar practice journal on my student forum, so I can see exactly how you are practicing from day to day.
  • Asking for additional help on the forum from my other top students (many of them are professional guitar teachers whom I trained to teach guitar).

The more items from this list you do, the faster you improve. (That means you need fewer lessons to reach your goals.)

The fewer of these things you do, the slower you improve. (That means you need fewer lessons to reach your goals.)

From all of these things, I can track your progress and adjust your lesson strategy as needed. 

(Note, by the way, that the amount of time you practice is only one tiny piece of the equation).

Not to mention: 

Your goals may very well change over time (this would be totally normal). If and when this happens, I revise your lesson strategy yet again.

That’s why it’s impossible for me to predict an “end” point before we even start working together and I get to know you.

Here are the results you can expect when you apply what I teach you in your guitar playing:
