When Sweep Picking Gets Old, Try This

Sweep picking was invented a long time ago, and it's been used in many amazing solos. Where would the Eighties be without sweep picking? Where would metal be without it? Sweep picking isn't a very surprising sound anymore. So when you're crafting a solo and trying to make a lick that will give the same wonderful feel of sweeping, try these “2-1's” instead. They'll make you jump.
