Ah right sorry lol i didn't no it was in half time. That's probably about right then which would mean the lick i worked out as 25.4 is probably more like 13 nps. Cheers lol.

yeah it's probably a good thing that tremolo picking is counted, and ill be first to admit that hammett is no shredder but i still love a bit of 'tallica.

Am I the only one to think this list would be ruined and kind of laughable if Kirk was on the list and lead to an influx of noobies saying they know people who are faster but barely reach 10 nps - which they obviously don't realise?

Uh... Back in the day, I just did it until my arm fell off.

And again.


And again.


And eventually you'll have enough endurance and more to boot.

well yea me too. I used to just pop in all my metallica cd's and play straight through all of them.

I just thought there might be a methodical way to increase picking speed like that. hetfield and hammet really are insane, if you watch the DT cover of master of puppets you see even petrucci has problems with it.

I think the way the guitar mag put it was...

Incase FP didn't see it.

petrucci plays 21 notes in 2 beats of stream of consciousness when the tempo is at 125

check it out

on this dying soul he plays 32nds at 138. which are legato

also he plays 19 notes in 2 beats at the same tempo
