My friend claims I will have a hard time learning to sweep since I hold the pick with a curled finger and rest my wrist on the bridge. Is this true?

You might have to adjust your hand a bit or something if it really ends up being a problem, but if you want to learn how to do it you'll adapt.

What's so hard with sweeping? I mean, it's hard to make it fast and clean. But the technique isn't really much more than using downstrokes until you hit the last string and go up again with all upstroke

People usually have an issue with muting the strings and synching up both hands, but I agree, it's a fairly simple techique to learn but it's hard to master.

hmm ppl are having issues with sweeping...
well ppl are having issues with everything... you cant just jump on and start speed picking running your fretboard up and down... so it's the same..

harder is to get to write music which comes naturally... id prefer that over the guys here who can sweep so fast but fail at everything else...

i can however write well and sweep so

Start out with slow three string sweeps. When you get better at it, try four, or five. Throw in a tapping part or just **** around using it in musical purposes, sweeping alone is boring

I'm gonna go ahead and guess that you only know the very basic minor/major shapes of sweeps... which are in fact boring. Sweeps are so underrated as a musical device, if the player knows what he's doing he can write a whole solo/passage relying on sweeps only and it will sound beautiful and musical. Just listen to most of Jason Becker's stuff or Paganini's compositons (it's not exactly sweeping but it's the same concept on the violin, plaing arpeggios that cover both the low and high end of the sounds).

Errr, I wouldn't go that far.

I listened to your music and I really wouldn't be going around claiming that you're a good writer, because, frankly, you're not.

He may not be John Petrucci or Paul Gilbert, but he's at least trying.

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

I haven't heard him, and so I can't agree with you or sleaze on weither he's bad, average or good, but no matter how good one may be, I and I'm sure many others, lose the interest on someone when he's got a big ego and let's everyone know about it like in this case.

Being a writer/guitarist/musician just as it isn't about the music you play, but it's how you play, the image you have, and the image you throw.
