    Sorry if there is already something for this, but i couldn't find anything.

    I've seen some people on youtube do bass sweeps (similar to a guitar sweep). Apparently you go down with your thumb and back up with the finger. I play a five string, does anybody know any solid technique for this?

    start with basic arpeggio's slowly. then start adding more notes, to make them chords. all it basically is is raking chords down than up.


    dont just stick with that motion too. expirement you dont have to go all the way down the arpeggio than back up. also try plucking all the notes, that in a sence wouldnt be sweeping, but rather just playing arpeggios
