I've been playing for 4 years now and I attempted Holy Wars, I can play everything fine apart from the main riff. I've tried alternate picking, but I just can't play it properly, I can''t seem to be able to mute the E string and not the A string for those hammer ons and pull offs. Please help me!

Take your hand of the e string when you need to play the a string and then put it back when you need it again. That's what I do.

Ok, thanks. I'm also struggling on the picking, what would be the best way to pick it?

Try resting your wrist just above the string. I find it helpful for this particular song. In fact when I play the song, I change my picking hand position for almost every riff. I play with alternate picking. In the end, it all comes down to practice. I've been playing for 2 years and I learned this song in about a month.
