but you have to remember, lots of sweeping arpeggios and solo's are played differently on the way up, therefore, NO, its not the same if you constantly play it down.

eg; (sweeping minor arpeggio with a veriation on way back)


----------------8h12p8------------------
------------10-----------10--------------
---------9--------------------11---------
-----10--------------------------10-----
-12-----------------------------------10
-------------------------------------------


now, are you trying to tell me you would play that:


----------------8h12p8------------------
------------10-------------------------10
---------9-------------------------11----
-----10-----------------------10---------
-12-----------------------10-------------
-------------------------------------------


?????????????????????????????????

if so, yes, its still sweeping...but, its WRONG! it does NOT sound the same

upstrokes take practice....but trust me, when you get them as good as your down you can pull off some killer arpeggios

i'm sort of having trouble understanding your question.......but one thing i definatly dont understand is....why there hell dont you learn to do upstrokes?!!??!!?
