Sweep patterns

Can anybody post some sweep patterns? I'm some what good at them, so please no 3 stringers. But since people who just started sweeps might want those, I guess post if you want

I've seached for "sweep patterns" nothing really came up. just a couple things

Thanks in advance

2 string sweeps? Those aren't really sweeps then...

EDIT: OOPS. I misread what you posted. Sorry.

This was one of my first sweep workouts I done , this helped me out big time! , its a vinnie Moore workout , its basically arpeggios cycled through the harmonised scale , once you've got this down sweeping these arpeggios will come 2nd nature to you , and you'll be able to sight read pieces with these arpeggios in , sorry if I'm patronising you , you may be an amazing arpeggio master , but this is a workout that helped me out alot so im posting it so you or anyone else can maybe benefit from it , this is still a part of my integral warm up everyday :

The reason the last note of the arpeggio is played twice is so it fits in to the triplet count ,
This is one of thje workouts i used when i got into arpeggio playing , set your self exercises ,for example

1 . Down up each arp
2. Up down each arp
3. Up one down next
4. Down one up next.

Then try repeat all of those steps but sequence them in 3s.
good luck
Anton

two 7-string sweeps i do sometimes- i'm not much of a sweeper, but i've worked some out. the furst is a straight major sweep- you ought to be able to see how to make it minor, look at the top 5 strings.

the second is something i just sorta improv'd over the top of a tune i was working on one night, and thougt was cool enough to work out again.

I'm drunk.

Code:
|---------------5-8-5---------------|
|-------------6-------6-------------|
|-----------5-----------5-----------|
|---------7---------------7---------|
|-------8-------------------8-------|
|---5-8-----------------------8-5---|

|-----------------7-10-7-10/14----------------------------13----13-12-13-12-10-----|
|---------------7--------------------------------------------------------------12~-|
|-------5-8-5-8--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----5----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

this would be an A# Major root inversion arpeggio if you resolved the A (5th fret high E string to an A#.....which would be the 6th fret) and then played the10th fret on the high E....(D) rather than the 8th fret.....thus making all the played notes A#,D and F

try adding a tap at the19th fret on the high E string (B) and legato back down the arpeggio for a really cool effect
