so i tried to set my strings on fire by putting a lighter on the high e string n it cut it so wtf??!!? i passed the lighter rrly slowly by it for less then a sec n then it snapped...

Take every chord shape you know and sweep away. Make sure you practice your triad inversions first. If you don't know what a triad inversion is, then you shouldn't be sweeping/

I suck at sweeping too.
Here's me doing a couple of sweeps > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zveEvc7NyAc

I've got a little bit of it down, but it still sounds sloppy.

My best advice...Practice with 3 string arpeggios o.o

Find the shapes, whip out your metronome, and start practicing. It's the only way, Alf.
Also, start with 3 strings, then 4 (I skipped this), then 5, and 6, and possibly onward from there.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Just came up with a new shape to practice:

e:-------------0-----------------
B:---------3------3---------------
G:------0------------0------------
D:---4-------------------4--------
A:5-------------------------5-----
E:---------------------------------

It's a pretty nice sounding little A Maj11 Arpeggio. You really need to have your muting down for those open strings though.

It's easier to do if it's like this:

e:-------------0h3p0-------------------|
B:---------3-----------3---------------|
G:------0-----------------0------------|
D:---4-----------------------4---------|
A:5-----------------------------5------|

It's not meant to be easy. Also, it's in even sixteenth notes the way I have it written which works better with a metronome. ALSO, you're picking every note this way which I think is better to practice then adding hammer-on's and pull-off's. ALSO also, "G" is not a note of a Amaj11 arpeggio; adding that would make it an A11 arpeggio.

then please do explain why there's an open G string in there.

A11 is Amaj11. Plus there's already a G in there.

Blah, I failed that one up. It's a Dmaj11 not an Amaj11. My bad.

A11 written out is A Dominant eleven. It has a b7 as well as the tones 1, 3, 5, 9, and/or 11. Amaj11 has a regular 7 in addition to those tones.
