Well,

being a part time metal guitarist, I've always known that i'm going to need to learn how to sweep

so here goes,

can anyone show me some excercizes/TABs I can use to get started

Because trying to watch videos online isn't very helpful (crappy angles, way too fast, no explanation)

I've been trying to teach myself, but I seriously doubt sweeping has to do with bar chords

So any tips/instruction would be appreciated

Also search "Everything I Do I Do It For UG"

As I have uploaded powertabs of sweep, shred and tapping exercises.

What makes you think you "need" to learn to sweep - it's not close to being an essential technique. Fair enough if you want to learn to sweep, but don't feel it's something you're somehow supposed to do just because you play metal...there's hundreds of metal guitarists out there who don't use the technique.

Sweeping is related to barre chords as the ability to hold down a barre is necessary to pull off clean sweeps. You can sweep down a standard barre chord if you want, it just sounds a bit boring, and a lot of arpeggio shapes will use a basic barre chord as their base. If you can't play barre chords then don't even acknowledge that sweep picking exists yet!

I don't think that's sweep picking you're describing there, that sounds like strumming.

Hey thanks for the replies

Yeah I guess it's not so much that I have to, it's just that alot of our songs feel a little too simple and sweeping can mix things up and work great in harmonies!

Oh, and I think I have the dust pan part down... ;P
