so im working on palm muted tremelo picking, u know, like the rhythm in angel of death or whiplash. well anyway, im not sure whats the best way to do it.
right now, if im playing an open e string, my palm rests on the body of the guitar, and the pick hits the strings about right in front of the top humbucker. if im playing it on the 5th string, my palm is raised, and rests on the 6th and 5th string.

im also working on downpicking, and play that the same as i do the tremelo picking.

i know there is no right or wrong way, and i really havent had to time to see if the way im playing now works.

if u could give me some good tips or advice, that'd be killer

Down picking is really not nessacary IMO. Maybe in Master of Puppets, but I alt pick that song and it sounds fine.

yea i can alternate pick mop too, and many other songs, but for a lot of em, i see them play it live, and its downpicking. downpicking also gives you a more precise tone each time you pick.

I know theres really no correct way, I just want to learn to downpick faster
