When I do 3 string sweeps I down pick the second string. Is this acceptible. or does it make it a different kind of picking? It definetly still sounds like pure sweeps. but yea, does anyone else do this?
That would be individually picking each string, and doesn't qualify.

Check this out:

Notice how when he sweep picks, it's one constant motion.

your a wreck, an accident, forget the freak your just nature, keep the gun oiled and the temple clean, shit snort and blaspheme, let the heads cool and the engine run, because in the end everything we do is just everything we've done.

Unless you're Steve Morse, it should be one constant motion.

Steve Morse picks every note when he is 'sweeping' arpeggios.

While driving yesterday, I saw a banana peel on the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.

You don't up-pick the 15 on B going down? And what's with the sliding? Shouldn't it be hammering on and pulling off on the high E?

there is no sliding thats my retarded way of labeling the diagram ^=upstroke /=downstroke and i only pull off after i hit the seventeen on the way down.

Steve is one bloody fantastic player. To be able to pick against every possible 'standard' motion and still be one of the best players to ever live is some feat.

Wait... what? You're using upstrokes while descending?

Oh I see. You're doing it right then.
For the future though, use "v" for a downpick indicator, and "h" for a hammer-on indicator.

ya i know that "h" is hammer on but i never hammer on i only pull off, and yes a 'v' would have been a much better choice i dont know why i didnt do it that way.
