Both need a lot more work, but i cant really judge from that length of recording,

try doing longer sweeping, more variations, and distorted sounds so we get the idea of how clean your actually playing.

As for alternate picking it wasn't fast, but clean so thats good, but i wouldnt call that shredding (as you have done in the thread title)

But keep working dude, dont let anything get you down, keep practising and compare todays recording to your playing maybe 2/3 months from now, and see if your actually improving.

I would have distorted it but then people would be like, oh we cant judge your playing from a distorted sound, thats why I put ti clean, but thanks for the advice, I'll act upon it

i guess your right, so do both, do half the recording on clean, then the same thing again on distortion. Cause good sweeping is clean sweeping. And of course speed comes with it as well. If you do update it, il check it out again.

Oh, luckily I have that one too. Thanks, I'll have a look at it. I love the sound of your alternate picking clip, by the way, but it'd sound better with Overdrive.
