I am about to start to learn and practice sweeping.
What sweeping exercises should i start doing
when i first tried sweeping I started with 5 string sweeps but it was taking me quite a while to get to grips with it so I tried doing three string sweeps instead. the came to me a lot quicker and then I moved on to the five strings from there. if you want to start off with the 3 strings I would recommend learning the 3 different shapes for each arpeggio and going up and down through them

Minor arpeggio shapes (A minor)


work your way up and down through those. then raise the 3rd a semitone to get the major arpeggios.

and also try some chord progressions in various keys using all the different shapes.

When you get a hang of it, you can try playing some Dethklok or The Human Absract. SLOWLY.
