What do you think are the best 3 arpeggios that I can practice to get good at sweep picking?

i started with a 3 string minor arpeggio, 5 string minor arpeggio, and 3 string major. I wouldn't know if those are the best though. I found them useful and they did help me. If you're starting now i don't think you would want to go into any wierd arpeggios or forms.

5 string minor arpeggio.

That may be a bit hard to start with so go with the triad on the top two strings to start off with. Listen to the start of the second solo in Mr Crowley by Ozzy for an example, or Miracle Man once again by Ozzy, ie Randy Rhoads and Zakk Wylde respectively.

i used a different form that required a hammer-on on the A string and E string. basically an extension of the 3 string minor arpeggio.

Major Arpeggio which i find a little bit easier or maybe because I learnt the major before minor.
