thumb position

ive come across rather an annoying problem when playing sweeps. in serrana by jason becker he does a sweep pattern quite high on the board except when i try to play it my thumb doesnt know where the hell its going and my hand feels very uncomfortable because i have to move my thumb to reach all the notes. How can i improve my sweep technique?
