K so I have the sweeppicking technique down, but now I just don't know what to sweep. Could someone tell me how they're coming up with stuff like amtriad? I don't see how they make chords up that high on the neck, does anyone have a website with the shapes or just a way to figure them out, thanks.

Learn chord construction. A minor triad just has the root, a minor 3rd and perfect 5th. It doesn't matter where you are on the neck.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

Major Sweeps - Every arpeggio goes 1, #3, 5, so an E Major Arpeggio for example would be E, G#, B, which is the 1st, #3rd, and the 5th note of the E Major Scale. So every note in the arpeggio would be E, #G and B, in that order.

Minor Sweeps - All of these go exactly the same, except instead of 1, #3, 5, it's a 1, 3, and 5. So it just works like that see, make sure you have a sheet with all the notes on a guitar handy , it'll do good things for you.

This.

Thats an excellent book. I only had for a few weeks before giving it my much better (at guitar) friend as a birthday present, and it taught me a lot. I'm wishing I'd kept it, because there's a lot of useful info in there.

Wrong.

A major is 1 3 5 whereas a minor is 1 b3 5. If a #3 existed it would be equivalent to a sus4.

+10,000! You don't need books full of scales and chords - just learn how to form them.
