Hello everybody, I've started learning "Sweep-Picking" and I found this exercise in my Guitar-Book: But - in my mind - it's way more economic, if you pick it this way, because you don't have to jump over the G-String: Otherwise I'm pretty sure, that there is a benefit in the way the Author wrote, and played, it! I'm not a good guitarist, but the Author IS a great player and established teacher. Long story short: I want to understand it. What do you think is the benefit of his Sweeping Style (red circles)? I could imagine that it puts more emphasis on the downbeat and so it makes it more easy to play in "the pocket"/ to get a good groove. Thank you very much, guys!
