Around 2:37 seconds into the video Frusciante does this tremolo picking thing. I can't seem to even imitate the sound with less notes. I guess I just don't understand what he's doing. Does anyone know how to, or maybe a video that can help me? I've searched like crazy, but now I've given up, and I'm just gonna ask instead. Thanks In Advance!!!

It's called 'using a pedal'

he's making those crazy licks like the ones from hendrix but i don't how he gets that sounds like that, i guess he's playing with a pedal at the same time....

Yes I am aware he is using a pedal, but I don't understand how he's making the scratching sounds. I've tried a lot of things, distortion and MORE distorion, Wah Pedals, Envelope Filters, some Chorus and Phaser, but I can't seem to get it at all.

Just pick scrapes.

Junior's usually at least a little terse, but he knows his stuff. I've always read his posts in a grouchy grandfather voice, a grouchy grandfather with a huge stiffy for alternate picking.
Besides that, he's right this time. As usual.

you think there is more going on than there actually is. its wah and hes just doing a lick over and over. i think there may be a phaser at the same time or flange but im not sure

Definitely something rude and out of the way to ask, but can anyone show me how to do it? Or at least point me in the direction of where I can see how to do it? It's either that or I'll give up for now. And that's not a threat, those are just my options. lololol Damnit, reading back now I seem really pushy, and guilting. Forget it . But if anyone would like to for me, or show me the way, that'd be great.... Nope I still seem pushy and guilting. Sorry guys. I'm a bad board member

Well he's strumming all of the strings, I believe ( I can't watch the video right now, but I know what you're talking about), but he's muting all of the strings he's not playing; it's a funk technique, he does similar stuff in Can't Stop and Scar Tissue, except not as fast.

I would learn his other solos that are like that- the majority of his solos from the Stadium Arcadium tour were like that- it's just a "wah-fest" or something likethat, I don't remember what Froosh fans call it haha
