    Sweep picking is a technique for playing fast. An arpeggio simply means playing the notes of a chord one at a time.

    An arpeggio is when u take a chord and play the individual notes. Eg. C major consists of C E G...so play the notes ..hence u arpegiate the chord. Note: The notes should be spaced out, that is they shouldnt ring out together as in a chord.

    U can play an arpeggio 2 ways:
    1. alternate picking
    2. sweep picking
