I need to improve my chops.

Can anyone give me an idea of where to start? I can do 4 string Sweeps, and I plan on being able to do 6 string sweeps by the end of the summer. Should I start working on sweeping immediately?

My tapping is half-decent. I can play Jump by Van Halen, but that's pretty much it.

My alternate picking is great, but I do have bouts when I'll economy pick. I can do 16th notes at 140BPM with my Alternate picking. My string skipping is pretty good, in terms of accuracy. I can't string skip fast yet, but I never hit the wrong string when I do little exercises.

I'm currently thinking most about String Skipping, because I like the tonal possibilities it ensues, anyways, because Scarified is a little too fast for me ( the string skipping part, the rest is learnable), should I try and learn Cliffs of Dover, but instead of Hybrid Picking it, string skip?

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.
