Sweep picking is one of the defining metal guitar techniques. Frustratingly, it’s also the metal guitar technique most often taught incorrectly! If you’ve been looking for a metal guitar book with an unique, effective, and proven approach to sweep picking, then ask yourself:
“What if, for the cost of a few packs of strings, I could learn to improve my sweep picking massively?”
With "Sweep Picking: Steam Powered", pro guitarist, author, and instructor Brett Miller provides a metal guitar book that will be your road map to devastating sweep picking speed and accuracy!
There's no confusing music theory here. "Sweep Picking: Steam Powered" is a metal guitar book focused on building your technique - period. With over 400 detailed examples, including advanced right and left hand combinations and patterns, "Sweep Picking" is all TAB (no music reading required), and is organized clearly and efficiently for maximum results.
You’ll build your guitar technique step-by-step, starting first with two-string sweeps, then moving into three-string, four, five, and six-string sweeps. In addition, all of the sweep picking examples are further organized according to rhythmic feel, with variations on each pattern according to whether you’re playing a three, four, or five-note grouping. These 400+ examples are designed to be connected - in other words, you’ll be mastering the sweep picking technique across the entire neck (not just the handful of stock, boring sweep patterns that most other guitar technique books settle for). This is real-world, practical sweep picking instruction, with an attention to detail that you just will not find in other metal guitar books.
Author Brett Miller has this to say about the Metal Guitar Academy line of guitar technique and music theory books:
“Look, I’m going to get real here. And maybe not sound so nice. The reality is, most ‘metal guitar books’ aren’t put together with much care. I’ve been an in-demand private guitar instructor for a dozen years, have a degree in Classical Composition from Berklee College of Music, and actually use all the material I teach - in five prog metal solo records, as well as video game soundtracks, etc. I’ve seen a lot of guitar technique books over the years, and because of what I’ve seen, I set out to create the Metal Guitar Academy line of books in order to change the way guitar is taught. Because whether it’s books, courses, or worst of all YouTube, there’s so much out there that can steer the serious guitar student in the wrong direction. “Sweep Picking: Steam Powered” was written with one goal in mind: to provide the clearest, most detailed, most practical, and most valuable sweep picking instruction available today. Big words yes - but this book delivers.”
Don’t wait any longer. Master the material found in "Sweep Picking: Steam Powered", and achieve a breakthrough in your metal guitar technique today!
