This sweeping study focuses on the E-B-G strings and integrates all inversions of major and minor triads. The chord progression is played a total of four times with each iteration varying the sweeps. It starts easy and gets pretty challenging. Think of this as four studies in one. The focus here is on the picking/sweeping hand and the varying rhythms; there’s a lot of repetition in the shapes. Develop a smooth sweeping motion  and then move on to the other studies.
