Do you have some basic sweeps down?

I would suggest to just do some sweep excersies (and increase until you get at least a 5 string sweep down).
"Basic sweeps" really do not exist ive noticed, its all quite complicated until you get the patterns down. I like doing simple patterns over and over till I master them, then you can learn other patterns and use them in songs you find. In the same way there are no real "basic" ones, there are not many "hard" sweep patterns once you learn the shapes. And before some asshole comes and pastes some DT **** and says hows that for hard, I was just trying to make a dumb point.
But.... The first patters I learned were from seize the day.
This one is pretty accurate.
That's his live version, and the sweeps(there's only a few in the solo-y bit, and none IIRC in the recorded version) are damned monsters. 31 nps if I calculated correctly(although he doesn't play it very cleanly in the video).
