Sure you can sweep pick, but can you whammy without a whammy bar?

I can do 6 string sweeps. There are some that I actually practice enough to be adequately clean, but a lot of them I half improvise and obviously those aren't clean like they should be. I still can't do a sweep and then tapping at the bottom like they do. I just can't make it flow right.
We're only strays.
Where's the 'I don't' option?

It was one of my endeavors during my junior year of high-school. Now that I have it down.. it's alright I guess, there are more interesting things though.

I can do 5's cleanly, and 6's somewhat cleanly...

cuz ppl hate how power metal they are cuz they think its "gay" or w.e, which is immature and dirogitory
its fairly simple once you actually master it, its just getting a variation in all your sweeps is the difficult part.

Can't be bothered to learn to sweep properly, I get angry and just forget about it for a few months
i can sweep well, but i rarely find an appropriate time to use them jamming. i can sit down and write one over a chord progression, but just flat out playing one that makes sense over a 3 or 4 chord jam with a drummer or bass player i cant do well.

i learned one sweep out of a book a year ago, once u learn one u have learned them all basically.
