Sweep Picking as a Tool - Concept Sweep Picking as a Tool - Example 2

The first lick is very simple. A setup lick, to connect to a run in minor pentatonic, harmonic minor, etc.

If you look at the pick strokes, you'll notice that I use all down strokes. The first four notes are swept, with the last note being a regular stroke. This may, or may not seem awkward to you, though I commonly use this picking pattern.

Key of C minor.
