No, It would please me to no end if you knew who the real wolfeman is. Yours truly.

On a serious note - Practice more and Waking the Demon can be done by alt picking

just run through chromatic runs, scales, riffs etc using only downpicks at a comfortable speed and then slowly increase the tempo
Worked for me anyway

For the chromatic runs do alot of single string downpicks
like this
-1-2-3-4-2-3-4-5-4-3-2-4-3-2-1 etc

Or maybe he wants us to think that he thinks that he is an impostor so he can escape to his outhouse and kill the real wolfeman(me) so he can take on that identity!

It's mostly down to practice. I used to strictly downpick, but I have found that now that I've gotten the hang of alt. picking properly I don't even want to go back to downpicking. Try to perfect your alting so it sounds like just downing, more efficient in most cases.
#19
Ok, well you guys can be wolfmen and I'll be the killer of them ...but yeah just practice, kinda like how it took you awhile to learn how to alt pick

ok you probably have to lower your picking arm and guitar so you make more of a wrist motion for the guitar. it helps me a lot. and also i dont think you play at 16nps while alternate picking because thats how fast the worlds fastest guitarist plays and is the record so far but thats ok because everybody makes mistakes on thier nps.

I doubt you can do 16 nps, that's got to be close to the world record. Presumably you could down pick at least 8 then which is incredibly fast for just down picking and you wouldn't have asked the question.
