As always, thankee kindly for your awesome comments! So since I covered general sweeping form, its time to get into the actual shapes!
A shape is just a movable pattern whose root note changes whenever the shape is moved up and down. A root note is the first note in whatever scale/ chord the sweep is based off of. Thats most of the theory you'll need for now.
Since I am lazy, I don't want to make a 3 string and a five string sweep tab. So I will just have the five string, and you can just use the last three strings from it for your easier three string version. And without further rambling, here is a C major sweep:
I also added its counterpart, the C minor. Major= happy, Minor= Sad.
The root note is the 15, or C. Get it?? C major sweep has a C as its root!
That would mean that a D major sweeps root would be?? Thats right! A D!!
Any questions and stuff, feel free!! Tomorrows lesson will cover how to make your own sweeps, and possibly sound examples.
