Beyond the BassiKs 2

This time around we are going to do true sweeps. The shapes are 2 octave triads: Major-minor-minor. I use my thumb as a “pick” for the down strokes, and my index finger for the up strokes. The key is to make it a fluid movement while still retaining economy of motion. The best thing to do is position your picking hand over the fretboard next to your fretting hand throughout the whole sweep. Good luck and have fun.
