when you "sweep" your pick across the strings, to do some fast picking, or arpeggios. house of the rising sun uses sweep picking, i think.
I'll believe in anything and you'll believe in anything.

basically its picking up and down a chord separating the chord into individual notes. its called sweep picking because even though your left hand is going crazy your right hand just "sweeps" over the notes.

oh so if i was doing a D chord I would pick each not one by one but in a sweeping motion? Like dragging the pick down?

haha. no that's not sweep picking.
Sweep picking is done by playing an arpeggio, 99% of the time on the 5th fret or above, by strumming it and not letting any of the notes ring.

ok I got you. Not aloud to ring. So I have to do it pretty fast huh?

Sweep picking is a technique used on the guitar in which a 'sweeping' motion of the pick is combined with a matching fret hand technique in order to produce a specific series of notes which are fast and fluid in sound. Despite being commonly known as sweep picking, both hands essentially perform an integral motion in unison to achieve the desired effect.
