I was wondering if any of you guys knew of a metal song that had sweeps in it but the song itself ISNT that difficult. I just made a practice regimen and basically every technique possible is covered in the songs I am working on besides sweep picking. So basically are there any songs by like Metallica, Trivium, Pantera, COB, A7X, ozzy, that have sweeps where the rhythm itself isnt deadly difficult?

Currently im working on, Bark at the moon, crazy train(basically got the whole thing), cowboys from hell, beast and the harlot, rain-by trivium, and a couple others. So something around that difficulty... no jason becker please

the intro to Alaska by Between the Buried and Me is some "moderate" sweeping, and the rythm id say wouldnt be that hard if your learning bark at the moon etc.

thanks dudes. yeah BATM aim too bad, except the end of the first solo is basically murder.

Practice some generic sweep patterns (minor triads, major triads, diminished, etc.) with a metronome, work your way up, and then attempt some solos that include sweeping. Speed Metal Symphony for instance, has a lot of basic sweep shapes, but they're played really fast. You should look up the tab for that and practice those sweeps slowly and gradually build up speed.

You should try practicing your sweeps with chord progressions. So to start off with you can take a 1-4-5 chor progression, and work out the chords (if you're in C major then you play Cmaj-Fmaj-Gmaj. You should do this using all shaped. Use the shape based on open C, the one based on open A and then the one based on open E. Once you get used to this, then try different chor progressions, adding in the minor sweep shapes and whatnot.

And as beadhangingOne said Use a metronome... Try playing them straight and in Triplets.

Seize The Day by Avenged Sevenfold seems to be what you're looking for. The song isn't that hard and has some sweeping near the end.
