Sweep pickers

Question for avid sweep pickers here. When learning the technique of sweeping, did the feeling of using a certain spot on your right palm to mute the strings not getting played feel like you was constantly sanding it off? And did it build a callus and become normal over time? Like, Was that a thing? I was practicing my sweeps and thought damn I'm gonna get a callus on that spot im muting with. Wondering if thats a normal thing for people who have sweeping down?

well, you're not grinding your palm along the strings to mute. you're not even resting it on the strings. you're just touching them. so you shouldn't be pressing enough for it to feel irritating at all.

I have noticed the same indeed.
Don't know if it is a common thing, but i do indeed have some kind of callus on the side on my hand and i couldn't think of another thing where it could've come from.

Never had this myself but as previously stated you wouldn't normally be rubbing your hand on the strings to the point where it would cause a callus. That said, if the technique works for you and it does the job then it doesn't really matter.

My hand is always solid I sweep from the wrist, so I donīt have any issues.
