One of my pet peves with the whole sweep picking thing is the distortion. I would like to have heard some of the examples with less distortion or a completely clean tone. I tried searching for something like this on youtube, but had no luck. Seems like everyone who uses sweep picking has to have an assload of distortion behind it. Gets old. I like a bit of classic tone, a bit more "vocal".
End result... it's a good video and definitely a good purchase, but if you can get it used for say five to ten dollars go that route. Twenty dollars is too much for the amount of information you don't get.
I found this DVD surprisingly helpful. I have always watch all those clips of instructional video's across the internet. So I was skeptical of getting this DVD. I found it to cover information that no one seems to have ever mentioned.
There are good exercises to start small and piece sweeps together into the big 6, 7 or more string sweeps. But what I found the most helpful was learning how to control the pick over different strength/thickness almost instantly adjusting which is what he points out at the very beginning.
Worth while getting if you are having trouble getting started. If you can already do 3 string sweeps with no problem save yourself the couple bucks and practice them on different sets of all 3.
