To start I would like to give 'hello' to everybody here at the forum.

I have come across a solo by one of my favorite bands, Bullet For My Valentine, and I'm trying to figure out what the best way to sweep it is.

Here's a tab for the first part of the solo(sweep picking):

*Tuning is in D standard and this is a view of the bottom 3 strings



          D U U D  D   D    U D U D  D  D      U D U D   D     D

D = Downstroke
U= Upstroke

EDIT: Sorry it came out a little sloppy . If you need me to explain anything I will be happy to do so.

Is that the best way to sweep it or is there an easier way to approach it?

Any help is appreciated,

You could sweep it and use legato for the top notes, or just do what you are already doing.

So make the very best of it

there shouldn't be any alternate picking- you sweep down (or up) the strings with one motion

I appreciate all the help guys.

I'm going to play it with legato as that seems the easiest way.
