I honestly gotta disagree with MAB's videos. The way he holds his pick makes me shudder and his technique, regardless of if it's caused him injury or not, will certainly cause injury to someone trying to emulate his approach. He picks with his forearm and elbow, IIRC, which is a tense and uncomfortable way to play. His exercises aren't any different than Petrucci's or Gilbert's or Minette's. Paul Gilbert is a much better teacher than any of the other guys mentioned so far, including Petrucci, and his technique is a lot safer to try to emulate without an instructor.

Check some of the lessons on here. I recall learning to do sweeping pretty much by reading what you're supposed to do, finding a tough sweeping passage, and learning it. I think I kind of jumped to gun and just learned the solo in Selkies by BTBAM for my first sweeping song. If you're interested, take a look at some lessons and videos and give it a shot. Just remember to go slowly and to play cleanly and without tension.
