I posted a video response to Lukesniper, who came up with a simple but effective to practice sweep picking, and I'm inviting anyone from GMC who wants to do this with me, so here is the link to the video.
I'll be posting some updates soon, so ANYONE who is willing to learn sweep picking this is for you!

Yeah I get your point, but the thing I'm trying to do is for some of us to come together and constanly upload updates on how we are improving, and any tips other GMC'ers may have for us. Something that's easily done on I guess both websites. laugh.gif
FYI: I responded to the video I posted the link to!

So is anybody else going to try this? I can easily say I've gotten better with this routine, except I cut my finger today, it's going to slow me down a bit, the more the merrier! biggrin.gif

I think I might do this. It will be handy to be able to sweep fast.. only for showing off. tongue.gif I cant see myself ever using it in music I make.

Edit: Not at such a high tempo i mean, im sure i might use the shapes or arpeggios is called?

This is a really cool post you got here smile.gif .I can definatly see this only improving everyones sweeping technique,the only question is will you put the work in?Thats the big thing cause thats really the only way your going to get it down.I also like how the dude in video said to start very slow at around 50 bpm.He is very right about the fact that its boring but if you try to get ahead of yourself you will get very sloppy habbits.

I really wish i had more time these days to focus on my playing cause honestly i really see this a sure way to improve on sweeping as long as your dedicated and follow the routine.Best of luck to you all and i will also try and put as much time as possible into this as well biggrin.gif

I'll get in on this. My sweep-picking is awful, so it'll be good for me as I really like this technique. If I just do it for 2 months I'll be such a better player at the end of it.

Have you thought about using guitar pro to program in a practice routine? I do that at the moment and I've found it really helps. I program an alternate picking pattern in and then set it at 70bpm and make it go round 99 times, then it automatically moves onto the next shape and does it again, could work well for this too I suppose.

EDIT: Oh, should I switch down to 50bpm? Do you guys think that'll help, as I've been wondering if 70 was too fast to practice at?

2 months?? hahaha good joke...

You really believe in that?

EDIT: if you look at his tabs: http://lukesniper.lfhost.com/files/arps.pdf you'll see the guy knows nothing about notation, duration of notes and playing with metronome....

My lessons are not good enough sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif

I was going to do this but, im just going to use the idea, stick with something for 2 months and not deviate. Because that is what I do. start learning something and then i start learning something else instead and forget to play the other things.

Edit: Pavel and Muris lessons are great, i have not got past pavel's sweeping lesson 1 yet tongue.gif I just started something else.
