Picking sequences of one note/ notes really fast.

Listen to Van Halen's Eruption. The trem picking is right before the tapping.

People don't like Dave Mustaine because he created something that owned Metallica in just about every single aspect of thrash metal.

Tr***lo simply means a fast repetition of the same note.

However it's done differently in classical, electric guitar styles, flamenco etc. You need to be more specific in your question.

What sort of acoustic guitar. There are three: classical, flamenco, or steel string.

I'll answer these three in order.

Classical: If you don't know the letters for the fingers of the right hand, p is the thumb, i is the index, m is the middle and a is the ring finger. The traditional way of playing classical tremolo is to start with the thumb, generally playing a bass note, then proceed with ami on one note (most of the time on one string, sometimes on two). This is best to be practiced slowly until it is completely even.

Flamenco: Basically the same as classical tremolo, except it contains one extra stroke. As usual, you start with the thumb (p), then proceed with index (i), ring (a), middle (m) and index. This gives a much smoother flow of sound, but the uneven beat division may be difficult to get used to. To recap: p i a m i.

Steel string: if you know how to play the electric guitar, this is the exact same form of tremolo; just rapid picking with the pick. Can't get much simpler.

Hmm... being the acoustic/classical thread, I would have assumed that THIS would have been the one he meant. Yes, as in Recuerdos de l'Ahambra. (probably botched the spelling, but whatever.... yes, that piece....) Also used in the advanced arrangements of Romanza, IIRC.
