ok so ive picked up sweep picking to a degree. i figured out three strign sweeps watching a video of satch where he mentioned something about a box style of practiceing for speed so i made something like
--------5-6-7--------
------6-------6-------
----7-----------5-6-7 basically a box shape with and x in it which made my three strigns sweeps pretty good. but i can only do 4 string licks licks i cant do up and down sweeps, what i mean is i can only do sweeps like the one in the intro to fade to black. what i was wondering is how do i train myself to do 4 and 5 string sweeps. i keep trying to do it slow and speed up but i just cant do it that way (im trying to learn it for thunderhorse because its and awesome sweep but i want to learn it to apply it all my playing as it will help my improvising). also how do i form a sweep out of a scale is it best to just make it up based off the notes or is there a good combination of notes in a scale to make a sweep.
i dont use penatonic all that much as i keep forgeting it and i dont remember waht my notes actually stand for on my tabs (like i know what a b2 2 b3 is but i cant remember what exactly they mean and what notes they apply to) so i only use the the seven note scales (cant remeber the techanical name for the diatonic?)
i know thats alot and if i didnt make it clear enough jsut say so and ill correct it, i really want to learn this so any way i can make it easier for someone to help me is fine by me
thanks in advance to nayone who helps

I started to learn by playing the intro to Glasgow Kiss by John Petrucci. Idk if that helps or not.

its not that i dont like penatonics their just so uninteresting if your going to do sweeping, and i know if i learn sweeping with the seven note scale i can apply it to a five note scale a little easier whereas i think for myself learning the five note scale sweep then applying to a seven note scale sweep would be harder. if i said any of that right

the basic shape is a standard bar chord


I learnt by watching vids of people such as satch, petrruci, or a few trivium songs, working out the shapes and going over them

i also forgot to ask what is a good setup to get almost no noise when your sweeping/ tapping two hand becuase i all ways end up getting unwanted noise when im tapping how do i stop the other string for vibrating, not to be pompus but im prety good a palmmuting i dont know how to mute the strings or get less feedback when i do double tapping is it a pedal setup or is it all about my fingers. im not sure so that would help too.
and as for the barre chords does that mean this
---------------------15
------------------15
