I've been practicing sweeping off and on. Last time I practiced it was lame and sloppy. Tonight, I just tried it again and it just sorta clicked for me. I mean, I'm not the perfect sweeper, but my timing of the two hands is very close. My sweeping is much more fluid. I can also sweep faster.

Has this ever happened with you? Has something ever just "clicked?" smile.gif

I had a similar experience with sweeping... I first encountered some basic Yngwie shapes in a guitar mag years ago.. and altho I wasn't perfect it didn't take me long to get the feel of it. I'm still not that great at sweeping but the learning side of it didn't take long smile.gif

yep, I think a lot of techniques that you find difficult can suddenly just "click", I also had this with sweeping (although again by no means brilliant at it now), but I think its great, its showed that you`ve practiced hard at it and not given up, it sometimes just takes time for the fingers brain etc to all sync smile.gif

good job smile.gif

Congrats smile.gif When this happens, it's one of the best parts about playing the instrument. smile.gif I have had times like that especially when I would first break through a certain speed barrier or something like that.

Practice!

Congratulations mate! smile.gif This is a sure proof that you've been practicing. "Clicks" usually happen after couple of days off.

Yes - many times in the past. I think these "click" moments are what makes the practicing fun and worth it.
For something its days for something years but when it happens the feeling is great!
