Look in the threads from last spring, do a search on "sweeps", or just look for anything with the title of sweeps in it, where you see a lot of replies. you will find Pavel there, and I assure you, whatever questions you have, or advice you need, he has provided that in detail a number of times in those threads.

if you can't find these, ask again, I will find some for you.

The best way to tackle them is to go slow at first then build up your speed. Depending on your skill, it might take a while.

^^^^Thats nice biggrin.gif
You know im a blunt person myself and like to tell it like it is but, due to my wife asking me i decided to try and be blunt while doing it in a nice way.It works ofcourse sometimes there is no nice way of saying something but if you try to be nice about it at first alot of times it actually pays off.I save the hatful blunt attitude for when there is no other opition laugh.gif

My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

Well, make sure you read all the forum discussions we have had. That way you will know that whatever anyone can tell you about sweeps, you have heard, it is all in the forum archives. Sweeping is one of the most difficult techniques. Anyone who says it is easy, well I have seen guys say that on internet, but when they did a video, they were not that good at it. Maybe some guys really did learn easy, but I have not seen evidence of that, and am skeptical. So don't get discouraged, we all have to work on it like that.
