Best Sweep Picking in the Solo


The Top Ten

1 Kissing The Shadows - Children Of Bodom

those who don't think this is the best... haven't heard the solo yet!

Absolutely the best.. In comparison Avenged Sevenfold is crap

2 Serrana - Jason Becker

.. you think there is better sweep picking solo than this?

3 The Wicked End - Avenged Sevenfold

Good. But I think its little bit of overrated for being on number 1. - zxm

4 End of the Beginning - Jason Becker
5 Na - Warfaze
6 Guti (The Finale) - Aurthohin

Okay I may overlove this song. But there is some great solos in this song which stuck in my head.

Anyway, the solos in this song were played by two guitarists Shishir and Kamal. And Kamal used some sweep picking in this song. Especially at the ending solo. Also with mix of some alternate pickings. - zxm

By the way, there is also an ending sweep picking lick at the end of the song. Kamal started it, then after the bass tapping solo Shishir again started to sweep pick. Maybe same chords. It lasted till the end of the song.

I am talking about additional sweep picking. I didn't add this song for it. - zxm

7 Altitudes - Jason Becker

Another great sweep picking. - zxm

8 Jordan - Buckethead

Wait, that was sweep picking?! I always thought it was something else. It must've been one of the most unique sweep picking. - zxm
