Hey all

I am starting to sweep more and more. I was wondering what good exercises you guys do to get better at sweeping. Right now i just pick a chord form. (ex. d maj7) and just sweep all of the notes in it. But i need some more exercises.

They can be any level.

Thank you so much

Learn the Sweeps in Dechristianize by Vital Remains, or Under the Influence by Rusty Cooley, both pretty sweet.

Uhm, dont know how good you are at sweeping, but look at tabs for Necrophagist solos, they always have some interesting sweeps often ended with some taps which is fun if you can play it correctly

The sweeping solo in 'In the Name of God' by Dream Theater is pretty cool, it helped me with sweep picking alot.

try 3 string rakes first, then move to full 6 string rakes, it will make learning to master the technique easier, that is what my guitar teacher told me anyway.

i learned to do 3 stings first, now im doin 5 strings, a major shape, a minor shape and acceding and decending shape (havnt tried this 1 yet), i still need to get rid of the unwanted noise though, pain in the ass xD

just keep trying, u will get it soon, takes about 2-3 weeeks of hard practice or something like that.
