Sweep Picking Exercises- 5 Yngwie Malmsteen Riffs to Boost Technique

Today we’re going to take a look at a few sweep picking ideas from Yngwie Malmsteen.  All of these are only 3 string sweeps so there is not any thing too big.  These are good for both the beginner sweeper to use to learn some basic 3 string shapes and for the expert who just wants to get some Yngwie under their fingers.
