    Learn to be proficient with Arpeggios?
    I hate those effers :D
    There is rarely a time when they sound good to me.

    Are you talking about sweeps or arpegios in general? Sweeps are silly most of the time....

    Sweeps, those stupid sweeps. Arpeggios are great to know for reference IMO.
    When I see that crazy up and down for no reason, I wonder why?
    I respect the time it takes. I'd rather focus on vibrato personally :D
    Especially bends vibrato :D. To me, that's where the feel is.

    Thanks for the video, they always get to the point vs worded explanations.
    As for arpeggios, I just take them in stride as every technique I’ve learned so far was difficult but rewarding in the end.

    Can you play as mean as you want to sound? My interest is peaked.
    You seem to know all.
