    Unhappy sweep picking

    I have a question about sweep picking technique:

    when I try to do it, the sound gets all mixed up. I'm shure it's because I don't mute the strings well.
    Should I do the string muting with my right hand or with my left? Should I lift the freting finger I'm using in order to mute the note?
    I would appreciate that somebody helped me out in this one 'cause I'm really mixed up.

    The best way I have found to must e the strings when I sweep is to lift your fretting finger immedialy after you sound the note.

    You can learn ALOT (and when I say alot I mean a ****load!!) of stuff from EricV's articles...here is a good sweep picking article he wrote
