I have been trying to learn to sweep for a couple of months now, and I am doing alright with a few of the 3 string sweeps. I have just learned this 5 string sweep but I can't do it without a ridiculous amount of extra noise. My main issue is when I take mt finger off the string. No matter how slow or fast I remove my finger from the string, The string is still ringing and making noise after I lift off. Its like I'm plucking the string, but I can't see how because I am going striaght up off the string. Is there any way I can get around this?
lol your right hand is the problem then, you have to be more careful with your muting.
^wat he sed mute with your right.
