Well first of all I would like to thank everyone for the last bit of advice you gave to me. I figured out that my fingers weren't arched enough, but the main problem was that I actually needed to trim my nails. (my bad)

Anyway, I started to practice sweep picking the other day as I thought it would be a valuable technique to have and I was wondering if anyone would happen to know any good techniques to start off with. I know going really slow is the best way to learn them. Also would anyone happen to know some excercises that are good to practice with. Currently I am just working with an E-minor arpeigio, but I'm getting quite bored with it.

Thanks again,
Ozzwald P Ozzington

lol you coulnd't figure out you had to cut your nails!

but yeah if you are going for speedy sweeps practice flying through all 12 major scales one at at time.



better yet, instead of wanking mindlessly on a major sweep

play through a major scale, all the degrees and whatnot
for instance, i do D major, starting on 5th fret of a, and just play it up through the sequencing, so like this

major
minor
minor
major
major
minor
diminished
major

ill explain it more if you dont get it, so just ask

--------------------------------------------------- you have to pull off from 17 to 12. there are three more patterns to this if you want them just let me know. I think there great practice but i still havent got them down yet perfect. Sweepings hard but they say once you figure it out it really isnt that difficult. If your farther then this then i can give you larger sweeps to i have from 2- strings sweeps up. let me know, or enjoy
