so, i've been practicing tremolo picking from hell, a.k.a. Black Metal, and it has increased my alternate picking dramatically, anyone else tried it?

Yep, except I used to do it just for purpose of just getting really fast alternate picking.
I'm a musician/composer before I'm a guitar player.

1. it's called dimension
2. tremolo picking is completely unique, what is it?
3. I hope you mean it for real and not only "Oh yeah! I can alternate pick a single note 20 times yeah!"

well then it's great news I've found it quite helpful as well. A good exercise you might try is doing the chromatic with a tremolo-esque twist. Not necessarily the whole, just try doing a fluid-ish sounding chromatic on a single string doing this. You will notice how it really helps and good job on the dust in the wind!

Excuse me, is this thread basically - "Has anyone here played Black Metal?" or "Has anyone here done some tremolo picking?"

Because I assure you, they have.
