can you maybe rephrase that? sweep picking is a combination of fingering one note at a time with your fretting hand while picking the notes in a fluid, one direction motion. :?

The quick release of the left hand mutes the strings... :?

ok when i want to execute say for example a four string sweep pattern, is it techniqically correct that whenever i sound each note in a downward motion that i quickly mute the note behind with my right hand, and in the upward motion i mute the sounded notes with the underside flesh of my left hand. ??

I think you can use a combination of both muting techniques , to only have one note fretted at a time , and also as you make the sweeping pass , mute the strings that have already been sounded with your picking hand . Or alternatively you can use just the left hand one by itself .

Exactly. As is most of the other "Am I playing this how I should?" questions. :x
