Heard of Dethklok? A lot of their stuff is full of sweep picking.

I think there's a sweep picking section in "Arpeggios from Hell" by Malmsteen; albeit it being fast. it's easy to get the hang of, if you practice enough.



ah you mean the high e-string he plays and gives you a " " look right?

The sweeps in Canon Rock, hate me all you want, aren't too hard. They're set at a good pace, 16th notes at 200 bpm. Once you master that, if you want faster 3 string sweeps move on to some Rhapsody (of Fire) - Turilli has a lot of high tempo 3 string sweeps. If you're looking at more strings... well I can't think of one right now.

Also, keep in mind if you have some basic music theory knowledge, constructing sweep patterns and licks/riffs isn't very hard, as they're practically structured around chord shapes. Find a chord progression, sweepitize it, and practise it.

Later on, try your hand at Petrucci's solo in Dream Theater's Never Enough or MAB's Burn arpeggio section - both feature fragmented arpeggios, or 3-strings-at-a-time-but-over-6-strings licks (they're playable with hammer-ons, down the strings, up the neck, but that's marginally harder).

Don't forget to practise barred sweeps, with proper muting technique - you don't want to master sweeping only to be halted by one arpeggio three years from now that you can't pull off because you can't roll your ring finger.


And Arpeggios from Hell doesn't use much sweep picking but the techniques are somewhat applicable.

The intro of the light that blinds by shadows fall has some good sweep picking, but it doesn't last to long

This Godless Endeavor by Nevermore. Last 3 minutes are all sweeping.

The solo in the song Winter Madness by Wintersun is pretty much all sweep picking. Almost any song by Necrophagist has a lot of sweep picking. Psalms of Lydia by Nevermore has a nice sweep picking part right in the beginning. No Boundaries by Michael Angelo Batio is almost sweeping non stop from beginning to end.
It's GANDHI not GHANDI

Like the guy said, Thunderhorse, goofy as it may seem, has some pretty damn legendary sweeping arpeggios. Also, like the guy said, Luca from Rhapsody (of Fire) has some great little leads that are full of sweeps.


Good songs are Holy Thunderforce, Defenders of Gaia, and Flames of Revenge, and Dawn of Victory.

Also, the solo from Lai Lai Hei by Ensiferum has some wicked sweeps in there.

The swept arpeggios in Dargor, Shadowlord of the Black Mountain by Rhapsody are quite easy, as are the Leper Messiah solo by Metallica, both only 3 strings.

Altitudes is a bit harder, but is great to work on.

if your looking to master it start off easy with the basic method i used

e 5----------5------------5h9p5------------5
B --6----6------6------6----------6------6
G-----7-------------7------------------7

and when that becomes easy enough work the basic sweeping scale

e----------------13----------------
B-------------15----15------------
G---------14------------14--------
D-----15--------------------15----
A-17----------------------------17
