Alright, I've been working on Trilogy Suite Op.5 by Yngwie Malmsteen. I'm doing pretty decent on it, so far. But I get to the 2nd theme (The one where it's all sweeps) and I'm lost.... I can't sweep-pick worth ****!

Any tips on Sweeping? Thanks!

slow it down, and make sure when ur going slowly, your still sweeping with your right hand and not just picking each string

Yngwie sweeps? I thought he just used some economy picking but picked his arpeggios normally?

If it wasn't for Yngwie Malmsteen, no one in the world would sweep except for Gambale. He's possibly the most influential sweep picker ever.

ive been playing for 6 months and been sweeping for 1 week and im learning the selkies sweeps. can do it half speed =) so im very hapyp with that.

the metronome is your best friend. play it at a slow speed and nail it 10 times in a row, then increase it.

Certainly not the only kicker of asses...Alternate Picking is kicking my ass. Not getting the motions down, rather getting it as clean and fast as I want it.
