Hi, I am new to sweep picking and am having a bit of a problem.

Because you have to lift your finger off of each fret right before you play the next note on the next string, sometimes removing that finger creates a pull-off sound for the open string. I've figured that I can take my finger off slowly and smoothly and the open string will not sound, but then what if I have to move that finger very fast? I've also figured that i can use my next fretting finger of the string underneath or above to mute the string and prevent it from sounding the open note, but what if the next note is 2 strings down instead of one?

I'm just wondering if there is a technique that you can learn with your fretting hand that will prevent these pull-off sounds from occurring. Thanks.

You can mute the string with another finger.
OR, you can mute with your picking hand, but this may prove harder.

sweep picking down at fast speeds.....

kinda makes the above hard/impossible.

for up sweeping; thats good advice.

but kind of comes naturaly as you sweep up.
