It won't sound 'flowing' like that, and it's much harder to regulate speed, volume, etc.
Actually, while normally picking I don't hit the strings vertically either.

you should be sweeping because of the way it sounds, which is like this: dooduhleedahduhleedeeduhleedaahhh not tit-tit-tit-tit-tit-tit

little tip (excuse the pun), heat the end of the pick with a lighter softening it a bit then when its cooled twist it to the desired angle. feels more comfortable than having to angle the pick.

I have looked up the secrets of sweeping, as a first day guitar student (have only had 1 lesson) but he says sweeping will have to wait until lesson 25 at least

Thanks anyway

That would work on the up sweep... but what about going the other way... wouldn't that cause even more tension than a vertical sweep?
