  1. Namaste thank u so much

  2. Wow now I can play chords thanks

  3. Let's say I intend to play this arpeggios in 32ths notes all in one go, if I laid the first note on the downbeat (instead of the fourth one, as you do in the video), which approach would you use for the up picks?

  4. FYI your picking hand technique is bad your hand should remain solid pic angled 40 degrees no flip flopping the wrist up and down. and your doing this to create less resistance in your sweep because your attack pick and is almost straight on the string rather then angling your pic to lesson the resistance. but it is very impressive you can still do great with that style .
