Metronome and practice man.

The two absolutes of guitar learning. It'll come in time, just gotta be patient.

Yeah sweep picking will take a lot of slow practice, just ensure your sweeps are 100% accurate before you make them any faster, otherwise you will develop sloppy playing (google dragon force live)

He doesn't even know how to do the proper sweeping technique, which he admits to in his sweep picking lesson.

start fast and u'll just doom ur playing. start SLOW, and get the individual movements of each hand down, then work on sync'ing SLOW

Practice really slow, until you have it absolutely perfect, then speed it up by 5 bpm. Practice that till you have it perfect at that speed, and increase another 5. Once you get over the first hump, youll start progressing a lot faster. Just takes a while near the start.

If you watch any sweep picking lesson (Hermans, UGs, MAB, pretty much all of em) they tell you to practise extremely slow.
