Hey Zap

Running scales and modes helps... and look into string skipping... Then there's breaking arps up so they aren't "boxed" .. link them over the entire fretboard so you can use them to end up where you want on the fretboard, for continuing with phrases etc.

Think of the right hand as drawing a very straight line across the strings for sweeps... for 3 strings the wrists does well for more use the whole hand/arm, moving with intent to play the statement.

Working with arps will probably bring sweep picking into light... Many use slides and hammers in places, which is alright for expressing different sound or variety, yet learn to hit each note pure and clean first... then take the nuances on board.

Zappafreak... did you listen to "Help On The Way/Slipknot" for dorian?
