so I got most of this solo down, but around 4:00 in the song I cant figure out how to do it? I dont understand the technique do I pluck the strings from a higher fret or something Ive examined the tab but I still dont understand no matter what I try :/. been at this for a while please help me understand what I have to do with my picking hand.

Are you talking about the tremolo picking part of the solo, with the wah-wah effect? It's pretty straightforward; I don't think Mike is doing anything too crazy.
I can only listen to so many breakdowns and "spoken word" vocals before I wanna puke.

I find Jennette McCurdy attractive, but Elizabeth Gillies and Debby Ryan much more so.

That's enough, Djent people. We get it.

I think I know what section you're talking about. It kinda sounds like Mike is doing a fingerpick-type thing there, but it could just be the way he's using the pick on the strings.

From the sounds of it, it's a harmonics thing, it's a technique that's sometimes called 'harp harmonics.

Basically you put your index finger on a harmonic point (for arguments sake now lets say 12 frets above whatever you're fretting) then behind that, on the bridge side, you pick with either your thumb or pick if you're holding it between your thumb and middle finger.

It's kind of hard to explain in text, watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QLPZ4KEtzw Combine that with a specific EQ/amp/effects combo (I don't know what) and you get something that sounds oddly like a koto or samisen (I don't know which is which).
