Learn The Gliss Picking Technique To Step Up Your Speed Game

April 14, 2015

This lesson covers the technique known as "Gliss-Picking." It is generated when the pick is rapidly raked /brushed across the strings, outlining the chord tones of a specific chord. It can be performed either ascending or descending.

The technique is very similar to what is more well known of as, "Sweep Picking." However, when we, "Gliss-Pick," we're mainly concerned with the rapidly 'swept' coverage of an arpeggio into a destination pitch.

In this video, we'll use on-screen TAB to organize a collection of different, "Gliss-Picked," example ideas to help viewers get better at performing this very cool sounding technique.
