I have learned it and I can play the whole song. I'll film it in a few days.

More than anything else though... I'm surprised you think I actually care whether you can play the song or not

Why would you shoot a video when tensed anyways?

OT: We're going awfully off-topic here..

Yeah, you're not keeping up.

Not that I could, that's a ****ing brutal tune!

In terms of technique, watch from this timestamp -

http://www.youtube.com/watch?featur..._7tu11w#t=1m54s

Look at your hand as you gallop, and then look what happens to the shape of your hand during the held chord. Your hand should always be as relaxed as when you're just holding that chord! There's no advantage to the amount of tension your holding in your picking hand atm - funnily enough, if you could eliminate it I bet you could keep up with the song. Tension has massive impact on speed and stamina. Look at the picking hands of these guitarists -



Look at his spare fingers. They're flopping about because they're chilled out as ****.





If you really want to get ridiculous right hand chops, make relaxation your first priority for a while and you'll start seeing great results.

I never really thought about keeping my righthand relaxed. I tried to think more about it now when i played, and it felt better to and I could go faster.

Zaterlord's picking hand looks like a chicken foot or something.
It give me the willies.
The hand part seems as slim at the wrist.

Whoaw... all this metal... You guys need to play more reggae :p. It helped my playing into being rhythmically capable. That sounds funny maybe, but when there is only three chords to play and in one rhythm, what can you do? You're role isn't to shred the bejesus out of the axe your holding. So you do a lot with your picking hand, muting stricks, playing sixths, all types of different intervals at the right time, making a simple chord structure live and breath with small things. It learned me all these things

besides that; ear training

The bit that always gets me is the bit 32s in where he plays the line and slowly adds harmony while maintaining speed and definition. ****ing ridiculous. Caused me to rethink and rework my tremolo picking technique a lot and helped me work towards some tough riffs. (not anywhere near his level obviously!)
