Sweep picking does still pick nearly every note. It's just a different form of picking them.

if he's sweeping he'd be doing legato with his left hand

There it is, all nice and tidy, and it sounds excellent and is much easier! Thank you very kindly (though I must ask, did you tab it out by ear or you already knew it was string skipping of some sort?).

And thanks everyone else!

nope not sweep picked

hes just picking out the notes really fast
with some hammers and pulls

sweeping has a sweeping motion
the hands would be moving up and down in a constant motion

but that is some awesome picking
