ok this is a little section is played fast in a song im learning and i cant seem to sweep across the strings smoothly and in rhythm (i have no sweeping experience really) . When i switch strings is when i lose rhythm, from switching too fast or too slow. Any practice techniques i can use? or does it just simply take time

padan00b? if your going to be a smartass

1) lets see some videos of you
2) the fact that i cant sweep like a man whose sold his soul to the devil doesnt make me a n00b

and 3) make sure your remarks are actually the slightest bit humourous

that doesn't look like sweeping to me... it just looks like alternating between strings, which isn't that hard with a bit of practice

chill out dude. it's just a joke.

anyway, practice uber-slow with a metronome and gradually build it up. start slow enough that you're on rhythm, and crank it up about 4-8bpm after you master each.

It's advise - it means(to anyone with an IQ that's at least double figures) that you ought to PRACTICE IT. It's how you get to do things you can't do right away.
The fact that you asked this in the Pit, rather than the electric guitar forum(where it belongs) makes you a n00b. Thus I choose not to waste my rapier-like wit on a n00b such as yourself. N00b.

yeah its not a sweep at all n00bster. lol, dont get mad now. just alternate pick and play it as slow as you need to at first, then build up speed. the suggested up and down pick motions are useless. you just pick it in the most efficient way you find works for you, and build up aforementioned speed

Take it easy you fool, he gave the right advice, keep practicing.Asking people on UG isnt gonna help anything, practice economy picking or sweeping and it'll help you in the future as well.

ITT: n00b kid completely overreacts to a rather amusing play on a Star Wars motif, which he probably didn't even see due to being a n00b (Even admitting so in his title).
