Of course you shouldn't practice it at one hour at a time!
I practiced it about 5 mins at a time about 20 times a day?
When ever i would get bored or something I would pic up my guitar and practice it and then leave and come back to it and repeat.
Hope that helps in some sort of way.

Of course, you should only practice when you want to - but your level of commitment and discipline will affect your level of skill and technical ability, obviously.

Many professional musicians do, or at the least did (for years), practice multiple hours a day. It's easy to get bored, but if you want results, you've got to buckle down. If it's just a hobby, just jam whenever. If it's your true passion, or career goal, or whatever - you've got to study hard!

You'll be happy you did, when you're sweeping in your sleep.
...actually, I'm a drinker with a writing problem.

You could practice with all your different triads and their inversions - that way you're practicing sweeping and revising triads at the same time, and it'll give you a whole bunch of sweep shapes.

I really enjoy practicing sweeping. I think it sounds awesome and you can sweep anything you want. Sometimes when I start practicing it, I'll go FOREVER before I realize how much time I've been going.

I think it's C#m#7+5
Quote by Geldin
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.

When you do pulloffs, do you put the finger that's pulling and the finger you're pulling off to at the same time? Or do you pull off while putting down that second finger? The first way seems slower but the second way is faster.

Not with that C on the D string. Very strange.

Threadstarter, if you're bored, don't practice boring things. Try putting together a little tune that can be swept or make a sweep arrangement of your favourite chord progressions.
