A new Sweeping Exercise + The Complete ‘Time Of Your Life!

Today we try a triplet rhythm when playing our Sweeping Exercise.

We also get a chart to complete for ‘Time Of Your Life’ as this is the last time we study this song.

Week 12 – Step 3 – 10-20 min

Just like with the Chromatic Exercise, we can fit a triplet rhythm to the Sweeping Exercise.

And just like before, the down beat will now start corresponding with different fingers.

As you can see in the TAB, it takes 2 bars before the exercise evens itself out.

Week 12 – Step 4 – 20 min

Today we finish off our study of ‘Time Of Your Life’.

I’m gonna give you a half written TAB chart for this, your mission is to print it and fill in all the notes for the picking pattern.

When this is done, play the song on your own using the lyric sheet.

Also, play along with the video. Here’s the TAB chart: Time Of Your Life.

Next week we start working on a new song.

See you then!
