I can't seem to get rid of that sound that your right hand makes when muting strings while sweeping. Its not really noticable with one or two sweeps, but when you have like 3+ it gets REALLY annoying and noticeable.
It's definitely fixable with good technique too because watching videos of some people and there's very little noise at all; even when some of them play with stupid amounts of gain.
I thought it might be my amp setting (too much gain?) but that's not it as I tried playing with very, very little gain and it was still there. I also choked up on my right hand so its closer to the fretboard, that helped quite a bit, but not enough to really kill the sound properly.
Is this something you grow out of the longer you play in the same way your playing tends to clean/tighten up or is it probably one huge aspect of muting I'm missing? Either way it is really frusterating
If it helps here's a sloppy video of me trying to play Origin. You can definitely hear that stupid noise too. It's not an issue with my pick either because that is Paul's pick that he gave to me yesterday night and didn't make that stupid noise.

Thank you for helpssss
You're a better sweeper than I am so I can't help you with the noise, but I'll say this - almost all the stuff you post seems like you really need to spend some quality time with a metronome.
No disrespect meant - you have technique, but your timing seems like it's all over the place. Metronome practice is about as exciting as shopping for loafers with Drew, but it's a necessary evil. Do it up, because as much as I bust your balls, you do have some chops bud.
