    Go to the articles & lessons and read about it. Then practice. Seriously, read the articles first, check out anything (everything) by EricV. That's why they were written :O

    Are you for real?

    On the main ibreathe page, look at the left part where it says "technique". Click on that. Now look at the 3rd article, Arpeggios. Scroll down some more and you'll see "a closer look at sweep-picking".

    If that is too confusing, click on these:

    :: sighs :: Believe me Brent. If you practice those examples in the articles and master them all, you'll be a better technician than me. Practice Practice Practice. If you want more, buy all the technique videos that there are. Paul Gilbert's, John Petrucci's, Yngwie Malmsteen, Marty Friedman, Michael Angelo Batio, Jennifer Batten, Bret Garsett, Frank Gambale, (and the list goes on and on). Once you've seen them all. You'll get to the sad conclussion that you've spent hundreds of dollars to have the same information (though, expanded and approached from MANY different angles) that's available for free on this site.

    You rule your life so it's your choice: The articles here for free? Or go buy some videos/books.

    If you trully understand the examples. They will trigger new ones. They will reproduce and form a sort of arpegiated colony in your mind.

    Remember... if you build it... they will come...

    No Brent. What you need to do is to stick with something for more than a few minutes.

    Last month you asked literally over a hundred questions about some of the most advanced stuff going. Lots of us guys gave lots of our time answering with paragraph after paragraph only to find that sometimes mere minutes / hours later, you were off on a completely different tangeant, with lots more questions. You couldn't have really given the answers we gave much thought.

    You were just given some very helpful answers to your most recent round of questions and you behave as though those answers weren't sufficient or even helpful.

    Maybe if you would let us know what your goals are, what kind of music you want to play, what level you feel you're at now, we could help you formulate a good plan to reach some of your goals.

    It's a massive topic too!

    Your original question, sweeping licks, scales and arpeggios covers everything from simply learning 3,4,5,6 string arpeggios to sweep picking techniques, string skipping, economy picking, alternate picking, scales, modes...Everything really.

    In reality it's like in one question you've asked to learn and know everything about playing the guitar.

    However, if you like Malmsteen. The tab for his works are easy to come by on the net and will show you a lot of what he's doing.

    I agree though, the articles on here should really give you enough ammo to go for a year before you've fully mastered the techniques. From that you should be able to extend the principal and come up with your own thoughts and ideas on how to play your arpeggios.

    For me though, it's not so much the knowing them (not that I am a master of arpeggiation or sweep picking for that matter) but when to use them tastefully!

    Now that is a whole other question...

    :/

    Read the articles, do what the article tells you to do over and over. This is called practicing.
    Its not the techniques you use, but the music you make.
