I can only play the fade to black intro (the higher part, you know starts on b string 15th fret) at maybe 30bpm...so it would be only 10bpm if I do this challenge...should I try it faster or stick to the 30bpm...maybe 40? I'll be alt-picking it (i've only played with a pick for a week ).

I think it's a bad idea, you should try something else easier.

Maybe some Megadeth songs (I don't know Megadeth, so I can't say which song is easy or not, use google ) or some easier Metallica songs :
- The Unforgiven 1
- Nothing Else Matters
- For whom the bell tolls
- Enter Sandman
- ...

Seems FWTBT is the heaviest one of the bunch so...anything other than palm mutes and power chords? Harmonics?

Peace Sells or Hangar 18 would be prime choices.

Regarding this 21 Day method, would it be alright to practice several songs a day? Or it undermines the whole idea of forming a habit? I mean, I have learned like 20 different songs, but I can't play any of them perfectly, far from it. But to master all those songs with this method it would take more than a year.

I will definitly do this! There's a guitar webiste from a guitar teacher from Illinios with one of his articles where he also writes about this approach. Check it out if you want:

What if after 21 days playing slow, and it's time to speed things up and you realise you should have started with an up pick? ... Doh!

Do you start over at day 1...?

So if I say I'm going to learn this or this, should I only stick to playing that or can I learn other things or play other things too as long as they are at a decent speed where I don't make mistakes?

So I can play this scale, and that one, and play the sweet child o mine solo and after 21 days i'll have noticed an improvement?

Will the improvement lead to me play faster and be applied to everything?

I just recently picked up playing guitar a month or so ago, so I'm going to try this, and see what happens!
