For fast chugs, there's no way you can pull off D-D-U, IMO. But I guess that my idea of chugs are more along the lines that riff after the opening in Raining Blood.

Edit -- NVM, we're working on different definitions here. Sorry, I took gallops to mean chugs.

Yes, D-DU D-DU is how I do it as well.

Start of with DDUD and continue into a stream of DUD, at the beggining of each bar start with DDUD and again continue into DUD.

This if you want to get the Maiden-esque style gallop. If you're looking for the Metallica style relentless 16ths then just go with DUD from start to finish.

The plectrum should always go down-up-down, with a 16th note rest after the last down. Practice on an open string, nice and slow

That's actually a reverse gallop.

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.

The sixteenth note rest is what makes it weird. In 4/4 you wouldn't have even measures.

Just do it really slow first, then do it slightly less slow, then do it slow, then don't do it really slow anymore, then do it at mid temp, then do it a bit faster than mid tempo, then do it a little less than fast, then do it fast, then do it really fast, and then do it mindbogglingly fast.
No but seriously, for starters just do 3 alternate picks (down, up, down), and then speed them up until you can do really fast. It's not really hard, I could easily gallop after about half a year of semi-serious electric guitar playing. If you just practice it constantly you could probably get it really fast in a month or so.
Also a good song to practice galloping is Decapitated's Spheres of Madness. The main riff is made up exclusively of triple gallops, quadruple gallops and quintuple gallops. If you're not into death metal just check out the tab on Songsterr or something.

DU! DU HAST! DU HAST MICH!!! DU HAST MICH!!! DU HAST MICH GEFRAGT! DU HAST MICH GEFRAGT! DU HAST MICH GEFRAGT UND ICH HAD NICHT GESAGT!!!

Watch some tutorials on YouTube; or listen to Du Hast and play along... (It comes naturally) I am pretty sure that Du Hast uses plenty of galloping... I would recommend looking at the tabs to the song you're trying to learn, and play with that song, the rest will come to you.. (Once you're in the groove with the song)

I know that much, because I've played songs totally wrong, and I still catch on rhythm wise...

Really, there's no point in giving advice if you're not even sure if it's correct.
