I think I'm pretty good at sweeps I just want some songs that have a lot of sweeps in there. I like to practice them and get better I just get bored of the same ones over and over. I know songs like No Boundaries - Michael Angelo Batio, the sweeping in Selkies: The Endless Obsession - BTBAM is real fun. Any songs that have a lot of sweeping and maybe some sweep tapping I'd appreciate it. I know someones going to say Seranna by Jason Becker, I learned some of it but the regular song just doesn't appeal to me, so I don't wanna do that one. Thanks!

Alaska - BTBAM is really good to start off because it's not super fast shred speed sweeps.

Just keep playing over one arpeggio over and over, no matter how boring it gets.

Necrophagist in general; all of their songs that I've heard have a lot of at least 5 string sweeps in them. Check out Stabwound and Seven at least, and possibly Fermented Offal Discharge and Extreme Unction.

SEARCH BUTTON.

Rusty Cooley: Under the Influence, Dominion, The Butcher, Dark Matter
Outworld: Riders
Nevermore: This Godless Endeavor, Final Product, The Psalm Of Lydia
Jason Becker: Serrana (:p Altitudes, Perpetual Burn
Cacophony: Concerto, Speed Metal Symphony
Dave Martone: Pigeon Walk
Francesco Fareri: Scenes
Necrophagist: Anything
Yngwie Malmsteen: Blitzkreig

Note: I don't necessarily mean the whole songs for these--some of them are currently untabbed and possibly some of the hardest songs in existence (From a "shred" point of view, please don't start an argument saying that playing with feel is harder).

When the Water Breaks by LTE (Liquid Tension Experiment). It's a 17 minute song with something like 11 solos and lots of sweeps. For those of your who aren't familiar with LTE, it's a side project of Mike Portnoy, Jordan Rudess, and John Petrucci featuring Tony Levin on Bass/Chapman stick.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.
