From the most recent album at least, the lead lick of Gold on the ceiling uses fuzz (or so I think?)

Have you ever suddenly been able to play a certain piece or use a certain technique?

There were a few techniques that I always practised but never got the hang of. For example, tremolo picking and the punk-rock 'gallop' (early The Offspring comes to mind).

For both of these...

Fast picking and 'letting it go'

I've noticed that if I focus on every single pick stroke, try and get each pick as...

I'm sure for a tight tone you only need preamp distortion? Distortion from pushing the tubes will be loose and undesirable for this type of metal?

I have an SH5 in my Godin and it does high gain tones very well. It'd say it's pretty balanced in mids and bass but it is a little harsh unless you roll down the tone knob a little.

Work on what lets you play fast, and speed will follow :) Work on accuracy, economy of movement, finger tension, finger independence and short pick movements for example.

At its core it's interactive TAB. I think it would be ok to use it while you're learning through other means, but I'd never count on learning the guitar only with Rocksmith.

Try learning arpeggios and playing them with the chord changes, in conjunction with the scales you're playing.

A good start is the Major and Minor arpeggios, and then the Dominant arpeggios.
