Yes it's all about muting! Btw. why don't you practice 3 string and 5 string arpeggios first? 4 string are the trickiest to play so if you are new to sweeps go for 3 and 5 strings first.

Yeah, muting is where sweeping gets tricky, and i cant do 4 string sweeps to save my life, i can do 3 and 5, and 6 if i go slower, but NEVER 4, i dont know why, try moving your palm down the strings as you sweep, liek palm muting. biggrin.gif
