Hey guys,
Not sure if this should go here because the first question is tab related, but the second is more technique, although both deal with it.

I am very knew to sweep picking and wanted to know the pattern of picking for this particular lick (Bleeding Mascara intro)

|-------13-17-13----------13-17-13----------13-17-13----
|----15------------15----15-----------15----15-----------15-------------------|
|-14------------------14------------------14----------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

I understand that in sweep picking its supposed to be all one motion, but how can that work when there 3 notes on the 1st string and only one on the 3rd?

And also for this: (Seize the day outro solo)
e|-18p15------------15-18p15---------
B|--------15-------15--------
G|----------15--15------------|
D|-------------17----------------
A|-------------------------------------
D|----------------------------------------
How would you keep the notes on the 15 from ringing out??

Thanks, if this is in the wrong area please direct me to the correct one

Muting with left and right hand, your hand sorta rolls when fretting so in doing so you should be able to mute, you can also sorta palm mute strings. Practice it lol.

you could do either way, whatever's more comfortable to you. it'll probably be easier to do a hammer on pull off but whatever you wanna do

Down then up. Or just down for the first note, then legato action then start with up picking on the b string.
