i can tell you about the one in the end. it involves sweep picking and is played like this:


e|18p15----------15-18p15----------15-17p13---------- 13-17p13----------13---|
B|-----15------15-------- 15------15-------- 15------ 15-------- 15------15-----|
G|-------15--15------------ 15--15------------ 14-- 14------------ 14--14-------|
D|---------17---------------- 17--------------- -15---------------- 15---------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|


e|--------------------------------------------------------------/--18p13------|
B|17p14----------14-17p4----------17-18p15------------17------
G|------14------14--------14-------14---------15--------15-----------
D|-------14--14-------------14--14--------------15----15----------
A|---------16-------------------16--------------------17---------------------

D|---------17---------------- 17--------------- -15---------------- 15---------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|17p14--------------14-171p14-----------------14-15t3-17t5-18t6-t18~------------------|

How long does it take you from not being able to sweep to playing something like that?

Pretty basic arpeggio shapes there. You could do something like that to learn sweeping, I think.

Yeah it looks very basic, just the sweeping motion used is something I have trouble with most on guitar.

honestly the keys to sweeping are concentration, co-ordination and one hell of a lot of practice.

i think sweep picking isnt about speed, its more about co-ordination, being able to make both hands work together, start slow, use the metronome for timing and gradually it will improve, you have to make sure that one hand is following the other.
#9
It would take a long time to get it lik Syn, since he has very defined sweeping.
The solo however is basically piss easy, there's a Total Guitar issue that tabbed it.
#10
^^^ yeah the one with a7x trivium and dragonforce. the issue with the awards.

you may still be able to get hold of that issue.

it was a good read actually and all the tabs were good songs

if he does not post pics, he obviously has installed a pickup and bridge on his house broom for some brutal sweep picking.
