==========Crossroads 1 ===============

>From frampton@skitzo.dseg.ti.com ()

Repost from a year ago, I think:
=========================================================================

	The series I have been posting on the sweep picking
technique is coming along, and I will have another addition to it
shortly.  But I thought you all might enjoy this too.   This 
is from the movie  "Crossroads" and is the sequence that Eugene
uses at the end of the film to defeat Stevie Vie.  It's entitled
"Eugenes trick bag" and if you give it some patient effort, you'll
see that there are some really good arppegio ideas here, though Steve
plays this with finger picking, I have adapted it for my sweep style
in as many places as posible.  You should try the same, it's great practice

O'k, lets do it!
the opening measure begins on the second 1/4 of the 4th beat.
All notes in this passage are 1/16th's unless otherwise noted.

tricky here... the first 8 notes are 1/16ths...the next four are 1/8ths
ritard for the 1/8ths... then 29 ...(which is not available on most necks)
is played by fretting the string against the bridge position pick-up
on a Tele.. type guitar...(I cant get it on my Ibanez Sabre)

Till next time...
Good luck .. and good pickin'..
