Sorry for making all these damn threads about different songs but I'm relatively proficent guitar player and I need a song that would help out my sweeping+alternate picking technique, the only really shred thing I can play mildly cleanly is eugenes trickbag that my guitar teacher had given me as a exercise(the swept two octave arpeggios at the start and the rapid alt picking 5th caprice part). So would black star be a good song to attempt to improve my chops? Thanks!

I'm not sure if playing "mildly cleanly" will cut it around here.

A lot of people are in love with serrana, though, that is true.
