Its kind of a weird question here. I started sweeping not too long ago and I'm trying the regular Minor Arpeggio sweep but I'm noticing that when i reach the high E string and go for the Second note on that string ( the one you'd reach with your pinky)
I hammer it, forcing my pick to jump to the B string to keep the sweep going. I was wondering if anyone picks the second note ( with an upwards picking motion ) so the pick sweeps A string, D, G, B, E, E, B, G, D, A instead of hammering the second E string note. I just don't want to keep doing this with a flawed technique.

usually in tabs u'll find that in this situation there will be a hammer on, i personally, always hammer on in this situation, it sounds just as good, and gives u a split second extra to prepare for the upstroke sweep

This is how I approach it:



Though, sometimes I pick all the notes if I want a very defined sound, like so:

Some people pick it, some don't. Personally I find it's a more fluid motion if you pick it, keeps your hand moving, it's all preference though I suppose.

This.

theres usually three notes on the e string, not two, so you can pick two of them and pull off the third.

really, you can do whatever is comfortable to you, but for me, why would i wanna skip the e string on the way back up when i could just pick it. I mean, im there anyway, no point going over it.

Exactly. It's much easier to hammer on in most cases, but sometimes it sounds better and comes out cleaner if you pick the note.

Also, you should use "^" for up, instead of whatever that other thing is.

This is how I usually approach it. It's the most fluid way I've found. It takes some practice but it works. Also make sure there's as little hand movement as possible and you've got the finger roll down.

If you stay with the hammer on it is going to sound more fluent, but make sure you play every note equally. A metronome can be your best friend. Despite how boring they can be, in the long run, they reall help.

Hey thanks to all for the responses , i tried all 3 ways and this way is actually the most fluid for some reason. It works great for me at least. Fast and clean. Fantastic
