yeah so I was wondering how are you supposed to play that kind of "half" sweep pattern, or rather what is the correct way to play them?
I'm trying to do them the typical sweep way but something feels uncomfortable about it.
they're all 16ths at 200 bpm btw.

EDIT:Ok I can play them the typical sweep way after some practice (just the upside motion in this case), but are there other ways to play them?

I would start each arpeggio with a downstroke followed by a pull off, then sweep (upstroke) the last two notes.

which ever way you find takes the least amount of movement and is most comfortable to you personally would be my advice ...i tend to variate quite a bit depending on where i am going or have come from ...it normally is dictated by that as i am reasonably comfortable with sweeping.

the way stated is probably the most common way someone would play it though

Id say for the first sweep ,use your second finger on the G string ,roll the B and E string notes with your first finger and then the last pull off note with your 4th finger

Just an alternative to sweeping but you could string skip the bar sweeps

I would downstroke the first note, and do an upstroke sweep on the other three.
