New Diminished Sweep

by V3N0M3333 (Jun 20, 2011)

This is the way i do a diminished sweep either up/down the neck. it breaks away from the traditional "sliding up a 3rd" diminished sweep. it shifts a 6th, then back a 3rd.

U D D D H U ect....
1 4 2 1 4 1 3 2 1 3 ect....

the hammer on on the last note of each sweep gives yiu enough time to "reset" your right hand and do the upstroke for the next sweep. enjoy

for gs: i fut the fingering i use under the tab. the reason i use my pinky for the last note in the higher one(thats on the D) and my ring on the lower one(that on the G) is because the D string one is sorta like a major sweep and i always use my ring on diminished sweeps for some it makes a smoother transition
