Sweeping/Arpeggios up the neck
Are there any good exercises for developing a technique playing across the strings in what might be described as sweeping? For example playing a simple E minor arpeggio from 12th E, 15th E, 14th A, 14th D, 12th G to 16th G.
As a standard 2 finger player playing that fast from low to high is difficult because you can't sweep up in the same way you can perhaps rake downwards.
I don't tend to use hammerons and would rather develop the ability to pluck every note at speed than rely on hammering, and that's the only way i've seen people do this (other than pick players) when i've googled or youtubed this topic.
Use a metronome.
Start slow, bump up the tempo a little at a time.
Get to a tempo where you are struggling to keep up. Back the metronome back down to where you can play cleanly.
The next time you practice, see if you can bump up the "too-fast" tempo even more.
No tricks, no shortcuts. Just slow, steady practice, especially if you don't want to hurt yourself.
Maybe consider adding some more fingers when playing ascending arpeggios? It's how Erlend Caspersen does it. I think he'd tell you that his way is not the best or only way, but I've never seen anyone else do what he does. Worth trying, anyway.
So no particular technique worth studying for this?

With first 3 notes are on sep strings you can start that run up more smoothly.
