I've known how to sweep for quite a while (probably a year and a half or a little less), but for the life of me, getting it clean at high speeds (read as: 180ish bpm 16th's+) is something I've never been able to accomplish. Any ideas? Don't say metronome, I already know that one.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I find that the lighter you fret the notes the easier it is (not so light that you cant hear the notes )

also can you sweep cleanly at something like 150bpm? if so than you'd have to get back to the metronome and be patient with it.

that makes sense, but my guitar already has the action cranked literally as low as I can get it without massive fret buzz, and it's still pretty high.

On that note, I wonder if I have the money to get the thing set up.

Take it waaaay down slow and analyse your technique at a very, very slow speed. To play 16th notes at that speed, your technique pretty much has to be spotless. Minimize as much movement as possible. aaaaand Repeat.

Hey I'm not sure if invading on this thread but I wasn't sure if I made a new one that it would be seen at all. Can someone please tell me if I am playing cleanly enough?
