Im just trying to learn the Fade to black solo but i am having trouble at all the fast bits where i have to use alternate picking. The problem is that i find it really hard to get the speed using it. Does anyone know how i could improve my alternative picking as i still can't do it after practicing the solo loads.
just slow it down and progressively work your way up.
Practice alt picking scales and patterns and not just trying to play songs....your technique will greatly improve.
just sit watching tv or something and mute the strings and practice slowly, in time you will build up speed and get better at it
