Ok, from said in recent posts... I have been playing for about 5 years now, maybe more IDK... but i have gotten into metal in hte past 2 years or so. I am starting a band and we are slowly getting some where. I have been wanting to learn solo techniques and came upon pick sweeping. I have found tutorials and stuff and tabs for it... i have been practicing every night, doing many excersies, stretching and working my pinky etc...

I can easily say now, I cannot imagine myself learning this. I have no structure or hand positioning. Please help someone.

U mean sweep picking....yea thats a pretty hard technique to learn. I practised it soo much but still cant get it to sound decent enough. I remmember coming across video lessons on sweep picking here on UG. So try searching.

Practice, Practice, Practice...you have no idea how many people at my school think they can sweep pick after playing it real fast..

play it very slowly with a metronome and work your way up then repeat..it'll get you the most accurate with your movements.
