It's not really a "how to learn" type of thing. You just have to practice your balls off to sweep pick. It took me almost 2 years before I could even attempt to sweep, and I'm not very good at it now, I can do very little of it. It comes with practice.

Start off slowly on the pattern, and then your speed will build. The pick you use will affect your ability to sweep also.

The solo to Chapter Four is the first bif of sweeping I ever learned to do... which isn't much sweeping in the first place. Sidewinder has a few sweeping parts in it which are semi-easy.

Just try making your own simple patterns of sweeping and practice them.

Maybe wrong forum Hunter, but hello!

I personally, didn't learn from lessons, I just taught myself from the sweeps in Lexington by Chiodos. They're actually a great starting point, 5 string minor, major and augmented sweeps all in a challenging progression. I practiced my balls off and after a summer, viola!

Learn a good amount of theory before you try to learn how to sweep. Also take it to the guitar techniques forum.

this. make sure you know about what you want to learn (study it) before actually atempting it and learning it. and yes, you will get better answers at the guitar techniques forum

also in the link i wrote at the bottom of section 5.5 there is a link to a video so that should help
