Hey guys,
I was sweeping today trying to improve and I noticed i had been practicing and practicing w/ metronomes for like 2-3 days and nothing happened ohmy.gif !?!?
But as of now, which just hit me , both of my hands started to cooperate w/ each other and a beautiful sweep sound come out rolleyes.gif and i almost died jumping up from my bed to come here and tell u guys.
Maybe not important to some of you, but to me it was motivation and inspiration that i am still progressing! So thnx guys for all your help. Maybe soon enough i can really nail all of the 6 note sweeps w/o falling apart laugh.gif !

Thnx guys laugh.gif
I believe for some reason i have trouble w/ the b string huh.gif Idk why though...i either sometimes hit it just a tad too hard and slows me down while practicing or i don't hit it hard enough to be able to clearly hit it? any suggestions?
Most times its ok but i can't do it 100%...hmm?

You could also practice some really difficult arpeggio shapes, and then the normal shapes become much easier; and therefor more clean.

About the B string, the thing hitting to hard or to soft; you just need to figure out how much strenght you need to put in ur picking. This will come with time and hard practice:)
