Watch the Sweep Picking: Level 1 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym: Sweep Picking

Next up is a Sweep Picking Workout that will kick it down a notch as compared to Workout #1 when it comes to the bar count. It will be your first foray into descending back down albeit with baby steps. That's very intentional as it's much more difficult to make descending sweeps. For now, the lower note after the top string action is not even in a sweep motion. I'm merely planting the seed.

You're going to descend down the neck with a series of stock top three-string triad major and minor arpeggios with a pull-off at the top on the high E string. This is a very common lick approach, so get this one down good and then run wild with it when composing your own sweep picking etudes!
