are you kidding? you just need to hold one finger over the 8th fret on all strings and sweep upwards and then downwards.

Thats exactly what you dont do N00b
You have to individually hit each note...
Threadstarter, check the video here? On UG
And what the guy above me said, you do roll your finger along the frets

He's talking about sweep picking, nimrod. Read the topic title.

Personally, I have huge hands, so maybe that helps me. I just use my ring finger to bar the bottom four strings, with each note either lifting up or down a little, each time allowing the previous note to be muted. For the upper two strings, I throw in my index finger.

^actually you are supposed to roll your finger over the strings as you sweep upwards or downwards. That way you will mute the previously played notes so it wont sound like ****.
Its kind of hard to explain, check out pick'n grins lesson archive.There's a lesson there on sweep picking and it explains how to do barred sweeps.
