One of the easiest sweep patterns for me to play and one of my favorites, is the maj 7 on the first 4 strings. It's a diagonal pattern so it's not too hard on your fretting hand. Basically to play a DMaj7 sweep you start on the 12 fret of the d string. Then 11th on the g, 10th on the b, and 9 on the e. It's that simple!
This is a pattern that has really helped me to synchronize my picking and fretting hand with sweeps.
