Keep on trying. You will eventually sweep like a king if you keep trying.

I think that to help the ones that can't sweep. Though I'm not sure. Anyway this should go in the musicians forum.

Practice with a metronome. Make sure you use the correct technique. Play cleanly.

I can't think of any other advice.
