Im just curious... when did you guys started actually practising how to sweep. It's a very difficult learning process and do you guys start like a year after you first started guitar?

im interested to try out the lessons but i dont know when to start

I started around 6 months into my first year of playing, it's very annoying in the beginning since it's very tough at first, but I'm starting to get the hang of it.

I've been playing about 10 months now, and I started about a month ago. I'm getting the hang of it a little thanks to Pavel. wink.gif

Ive been playing for 11 months now, i started practicing sweeping just 3 or 4 months after i grabbed the guitar. I can say ive improved alot, its the technique i practice most and i can sweep decently: a bit of fast and a bit of clean. smile.gif

Never even attempted it or even understood what it was until 7 years after i had been playing blink.gif biggrin.gif This is a technique i really want to master since lead and shred guitar are my main interest's,but i have held off from practicing this because i want to master my other area's of playing first so go at it perfect without bad habbits.Also it takes so much time and dedication that at this time i dont have available yet sad.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.
