i can pretty much play most of it, except the fast part.
i cant pick that fast.
i try to, but everytime i either, skip a string, or "dig" between string so the pick gets like stuck. Also, i try so hard to do it fast that my shoulder hurts now. is that normal?


these are the tabs, and how im picking upstroke=U downstroke=D

I believe those are pull-offs

yeah I'd do them as pull off it might allow you to pull it off a little more fluently, just take it slow dude,

I wouldn't call this sweep picking. He might use all upstrokes but this isn't a fluent motion with mostly one note per string, which would be how I'd describe sweep picking.

I alternate pick it, think it sounds better. Even though technically its wrong..

Try getting a bigger pick, like a 1.5mm or a 2mm pick, It will help it come off the string easier if it seems to be getting stuck. Or, try angling your pick some. Try using a Big Stubby 2mm, it did wonders for my alternate picking. It may or may not work for you...

Also you said you shoulder hurts, so I'm going to assume your using you whole arm to pick with. Don't do that, make sure the alternate picking motion is coming just from your wrist. If you are using your entire arm, reteach yourself to do it only using your wrist. You might be slower now, but in the long run your alternate picking will get much faster.

Sounds like you're just trying to play too fast. Learn it at a slower speed that you can manage comfortably and look to gradually build the speed up over time.
Actually called Mark!
