As the title says.

Also, what are some ways to build left hand speed?
There's a special sex move I do called the Charizard.
It's where you light the girls pubes, then put it out with your cum and run around the room flapping your arms screaming, "You don't have enough badges to train me!"

Asking the Pit to play this is kinda like asking the guy who makes suggestive gay jokes if he wants to have sex with a man.

I'm not asking for easy sweep picking solo's, i'm asking for techniques to help me get better at it quickly. And i can play the first solo in One already.

Also, thanks for sig comments.

Things to keep in mind:

When learning to sweep keep your guitar on a clean channel so you don't have to avoid note bleed aswell
Make sure no notes bleed into each other
Make sure your hand are coordinated
Use your picking hand to mute strings
Correct fingering for each type of sweep
Hmmm thats about all that comes to mind quickly

great way of incresing speed is to play along to songs,you will find your self playing lot quicker in no time

start with 3 note per string shape eg

------5-5-
---6------6--
-7----------7
x
x
x

use metronome to build speed

then 4 string
-----5-5-
---5-----5-
--6-------6
-7----------7
x
x

make sure all these notes sound seperate and are pressed seperate otherwise its just sounding like a broken chord


then add hammer on pull offs

-----5-8-5-
---6--------6-
-7------------7
x
x

the hammer ons will be the slowest thing you are doing so make sure they are quick

then do this on 4 strings


then do 5 string shapes.....

well you cant be doing them cleanly if you are asking for this information on 5. even if you think you can do 5 go back to 3 and clean it up. put it on mp3 here we can check it out.

I always practice them with as much distortion as I can....its harder to keep the notes from bleeding together that way and it forces me to be more careful
#13
Imo, it's best to do it with both no distortion and a lot, isn't it? No distortion forces you to be more accurate, whereas distortion makes you play more carefully or something? Wording's awful, but you get the gist of it.
#14
To be honest I don't know ways of getting better at it quickly, this technique is one that takes a lot of practice and time to perfect. It is not one to be rushed, it took me forever to get it. If your at 5 string sweeps.. your making good progress, whats the rush. Practice with distortion, practice along with some sweeps in a song, practice with a metronome. I can definitely say its worth the time and effort, sweeping is so fun to do.
#15
Without Distortion you Learn how to play without the note running together, along with Proper Accentation. With Distortion, you learn how to cut out the excess noise that you don't hear in Clean.

Play Piss slow until you can play the shape perfectly. Put a metronome at 60BPM, and match every note to a beat, For 1NPS. When you can play it Perfectly, up the tempo as needed.
Eventually as you get better, you may just need to play the whole shape within a beat at 60BPM, And then up it from there.

There's no such thing - it takes time and you're going to have to be patient.

I'm no sweeping master, but I actually started on 5 string sweeps. As long as you play it slowly and accurately it's fine as far as I know.

Remember you can't practice speed. You practice accuracy and from there you build speed
I hate my sig

+1 i always use no distortion when i play

memorize simple patterns for the Major, and minor arps

learn to construct them

patience, patience and more patience

and do everything slow at first till you build the muscle memory
