    Well you can check out cyberfret but what exactly is there to learn about sweep picking. The name is pretty self-explanatory. You pick all the notes in one sweep. Downstroke while going down...upstroke while going up.

    And a practice piece is 'Kissing The Shadows' by Children of Bodom...

    ill try to explain it my way..instead of just sayin
    no offence guys just kiddin..

    sweep technique is basically when u pick the notes in one sweep where each note is defined unlike a strum dmf said..earlier..downstroke while goin down and upstroke while goin up..
    this technique is mainly used while playin arpeggios..
    so i would suggest u play a simple triad..using the sweep ...say d major ..on the
    1st ,2nd and third string..
    where 5 is an upstroke.
    play it slowly and try to get ur left hand in sync too and get it clean first..and then move on to a higher speed..use the same position to play diff keys..

    do this steps..
    these are three string sweeps..5 string sweeps,etc are tougher..
    i ve attempted to play them in my bands song last page..the thread is there in music talk..where there is a link to the song..
    the sweep part.. is arnd 3:20...
    hope this helps a bit.
