when you are sweeping down, you have to mute the strings with the fingers of the left hand.

A lot of music isn't really going anywhere. There are tons of fans in here going 'oh my god, <> is evolving so much and <> is so shit lol!' but tons of it is just recycled material and tired ideas.
practice makes perfect...it happened to me at first but now i can do it.

and try not to anchor (just in case you do)

you must mute with both hands, man. Palm mute near the bridge and use your fretting fingers to mute on the fretboard.

don't palm mute the notes like you would in a riff or something, that's laame. just use your palm to keep the other strings quiet.

Hrm... when I sweep pick, I keep my fingers in the shape of the chord, so if i'm play an fmaj (for the lulz) I'd keep all my fretting fingers resting on the strings and at the right frets so no sound comes from them beforehand and that i'm ready to play each note individually when the time comes.
