For anyone about to flame me on this, don't. I'm posting this for people to learn how to alternate pick AND palm mute well. I want to help people get better at guitar.

Anyway, listen to the song "Jambi" by Tool. It is the ultimate alternate picking song, as well as good palm muting technique. It's also played in a time signature of 9 as opposed to 4. Se give it a try! It's pretty easy to play. I hope this helps anyone who wants to learn alternate picking or palm muting.

The quick parts of the intro are pull offs, only the open pmed notes are alternate picked. I suppose picking it all would be a good excersise though.

Most guitarists alternate pick anyway, so just learn anything really. And always alternate pick unless That song is meant to be played with down strokes. I learnt to alternate pick with speed and accuracy using the boring descending ascending scale way and a metrenome.
