    Hey, everyone!

    I've been practicing and working on sweep picking for record and film the new cover for the song of band Heavy Metal Ninjas. Abruptly came up with idea to explane how I'm working on this guitar technique with particular musical example.

    Hopefully someone will be able to find something useful in my working process and establish it to own practice routine.

    Greetings from Siberia.
    Enjoy!

    Sounds like you got it down already! Any chance you can post the tab or an excerpt from that arpeggio sequence?

    Thanks, man ;) but I still have to work hard on it.
    I've bought the tabs for the whole song on jamtrackcentral.com. Unfortunately I can't post it here, but maybe I'll be able to cut the part which I'm working on and share it.
    I think it's a good idea. :)

    That'd be cool. I am lacking in sweep-picking exercises/shapes.

    I keep meaning to learn sweeps
    I have general fast speed playing down and have done for ages. I can certainly play fast enough in general that theoretically I should find it ok'ish to learn.

    I just never get around to learning.
