Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question...
From Mark: YouTuber; soblindwhobuddy
Q: "Would you be able to do a video on string skipping like the sweep picking video, (which I found incredibly helpful). I know there are other people with string skipping videos on you tube but the way you do your lessons, they always come across really well."
A: When it comes to this technique I actually think of it in two different ways...
I think of, "String Crossing Technique," as going between two different strings, while performing non-repetitive melodic lines.
I think of, "String Skipping Technique," as performing a repetitive pattern of notes for a riff in a song's section, (intro., verse or chorus melody. i.e., "Sweet Child of Mine").
The video lesson contains detailed information along with close-up views to help students better understand this information.
