Hi, I've been practicing sweep picking for a few weeks, and I've gotten decently good at it (for 2 weeks worth of work). I always try to analyse my technique and improve it when playing slowly. Today I noticed something.

When I play an arpeggio, which will be A major in this case,

when it comes time to do the part where it's 9(G string) 10(B string), and then 9(e string), am I supposed to roll my finger over to play the strings on the same fret, or am I supposed to place the finger there?

Sorry its so long, its just kind've difficult for me to explain.

EDIT:I'm not sure this is in the right forum, sorry if it's not.

U should do whatever you feel is more comfortable. There is no "right way" of doing it.
Personally, I find it better to place the finger, rather than roll it for a 9-10-9 like you described.
Anyway, find what works for you, and work at it.

oh ok. thanks . It feels a bit more comfortable to just place it, but maybe thats just because its how ive always done it.

Better than hooked on crack, I suppose. I'd rather know my kids are safe at home beating their meat than out in the world robbing old women for their crack fix.

What a huge coincidence. I have a butthole also.

yeah i only roll for those kinds of sweeps, not 9-10-9 feels better to leave them there.
