So I'd like some simple yet nice sounding excercises for sweep picking, and Slide guitar.

Any ideas or help?

P.S. I hope that this is the right forum....

Take any solos that you like and has sweep picking in it. Play it slower, if you can't play it at the normal speed at first. A song I'm currently working on for sweep is The Glass Prison by Dream Theater. The sweep starts around 2:20. Obviously, I play it slower than he does in the song.
Hello, Mirror - so glad to see you my friend, it's been a while

Help me - I can't break out this prison all alone
Save me - I'm drowning and I'm hopeless on my own
Heal me - I can't restore my sanity alone
