I've managed to get down sweeping with my picking hand. It feel comfortable and more natural than it did before.

How do you effectively mute the strings when you sweep? I know it can be with your palm mute i'm having a bit of trouble. I keep muting the strings that im hitting.

Flap it and enjoy yourself...

yeah you mute them with your fretting hand, which IMO is the hardest thing to get down.

I think the palm thing is the easiest way but you've jst got to try a few different things see whats easiest
with ure fretting hand after u sweep past the night lift ure finger up slightly without taking it off the string and it should mute it, i find muting with my palm while sweeping to be uncomfortable
