Description

In the last lesson we talked about extending the sweep upwards; now we'll extend it downwards. It's basically the exact opposite of what we just did but instead of a slide up, we're going to pull off at the bottom of the sweep.

Again, it's important that when we do this, we match the tonality of the arpeggio. This is an A minor arpeggio, so we want to make sure we stay within the notes of the A minor scale. This can also sound cool if you start with the pull-off, and sounds extra cool if you combine it with the slide up. It also sounds great if you start with the slide on top, and then the pull off below.
