Is my upper arm supposed to ache after fast alternate picking or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks.

no.

You're

a - too tense
b - using your elbow to pick instead of your wrist

fix those things and you'll be reet

On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

Ok thanks. I am using my wrist though. But you're right about being too tense. I noticed relaxing makes it easier and it kinda sounds better too.

I'm learning this song.
