Has anyone got any simple sweeps to get me started off with?

When posting them can you put where the down and upstrokes are please :]

Well.. Yeah.. I thought he meant, like, a full sweep..

Doesn't bother me lads, any will do :P :]

Practise on clean then distortion?

The above arpeggio that I posted was a G major by the way. Here's another for ya. A form of D major arpeggio:

E|------------------5-10-5------------------|
B|---------------7-----------7---------------|
G|------------7-----------------7------------|
D|---------7----------------------7----------|
A|----5-9---------------------------9-5-----|
E|-5--------------------------------------5--|

Slightly advanced, but if you master it, then YAY for you. Good luck with sweeping. It takes a ****load of patience.

By the way, if you can master it on clean, then it sounds 8 times better on distortion. So, I'd reccomend clean practice.

This one is good :

E-------------------------------
B--------9---7--------------------
G----8-----------8----------------
D--7----------------9-------------
A-------------------------------
E-------------------------------

This is really good for improving your sweep technique. Keep each note equal in length. May the force be with you.

It was A-7, not G.

I've been playing for 9 months and I've just began to learn sweeping. I'm practicing 3-string arpeggios. I'll post a few for you.

Sweeping is one of the most difficult techniques for guitar. It takes a few hours to learn but a lifetime to master. Start off by doing 4 string, 4 finger mirror techniques with sliding up a half step.

looks something like this:

e---------------------13--(10)\11--------------------------------------15-----
B----------------12------------------12----------------------------14----------
G-----------11----------------------------13------------------13---------------
D------10--------------------------------------14--(11)\12--------------------
A----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The picking for this could be down, down, down, down, up, up, up, up, down, down, down, down, or you could start off with an up stroke on the C (10th fret on the D string) to get yourself into a sweeping feeling.
