Hi, I would like to become a lot better at sweep arpeggios. My knowledge of sweep arpeggio shapes are very limited however. I'm not sure how I should be practicing these sweep arpeggios. Should I play one arpeggio repeatedly until I get it down perfect? SHould I play a number of arpeggios one after another and get good at playing them together? Also could anybody suggest some arpeggios I should play 1 after another for good practice (preferable ones that have different techniques in each one such as a finger tap on the high string or a number of hammerons/pulloffs). Thanks in advance

C'mon, man. We're just kidding. We all know that drummers are important.

After all, without drummers, who would bag my groceries?

I'd say do both, just work on several different shapes one a time...I don't know any music theory or names of shapes or anything..so i can't really help you there. But, what i would do, is practice a shape, then using the same shape, shift up a step do a couple runs, shift again, i'd go back down 2 steps then up then down and so on...then in reverse....then change shapes. After you have a fair amount of shapes learned, and your fingers will do them without thinking start combining them. I did alot of trial and error to figure out what shapes work good with others, what kinda feel i would get combining different shapes at different times n such...but Yea..hope this helps
