He's the only guitarist I have ever head saying sweep picking doesn't sound good to him. - zxm
Thanks for your detailed explanation, zxm. Now everything is clear. - Metal_Treasure
I don't know the context of this quote but are you sure he also wanted to say he doesn't like it?
I can say, to my ears djent guitar sounds like, "djent djent djent" but it doesn't mean I hate this sound.
Also, Marty often worked with Jason Becker who is a sweep picker... - Metal_Treasure
Yes, I am pretty sure he doesn't like sweep picking. He further says "to avoid that lameness". He also said "Any monkey can play a technique and get great at it"
its on the video of "How to Play Fast Arpeggios Without Sweep Picking"
Actually he was talking about Jason Becker. He couldn't take it that Jason Becker who came to music industry with help of him, and suddenly gets more credit than him. He was jealous and nothing more.
That's why I added these two comments up-down (side by side).
Marty Friedman doesn't hate it. He still likes but doesn't admit it. Cause if he had hated it then he wouldn't play it on Tornado of Souls. How come his sweep picking changed to non-sweep picking. - zxm
His quote at the end of his sweep picking arpeggios explanation. We can't laugh but wonder we never got another better sweep picker than a teenager. - zxm
Don't overdo it. Otherwise you'll end up breaking something of your guitar. - zxm
Arpeggio isn't any technique, that's why I added sweep picking to it. Anyways, but actually people makes the term arpeggio difficult. Its very simple term. You just pick your notes each at a time rather then playing it simultaneously. That's it. - zxm
