How does kirk play the MOP solo? does he use alternate picking? I refuse to believe that anyone can downpick as fast as that..
Well, just to be like everyone else, here's my rig:

Fender American Stratocaster
Epiphone Les Paul Custom
Washburn J28SDL

Mesa/Boogie F-50 Combo

where he goes-----19--19--17--17--17--17--15--15--15--15--14 Is this done with alternate picking?

with his teeth, silly ^^
aheh, enough spam.
May I use the thread to ask another MoP related question?
How should I pick the ascending part after they finish the solo?
I'm talking about that bit:

D---------------2 4 5
A--------2 3 5
E-2 3 5

I kinda find it easier with down picking, but I'm not sure if it's truly correct.
That god damned uncertainity of the self-taught one..

he tremelo picks it all still kick ass solo.

Michael angelo batio is a fag and rusty cooley also. Steve and Paul are the ****!!

Just an influence.

The first solo is all downpicked (I think James played it). The second one is just, uh, normal.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

I have a Metallica question but it's not from MoP. How does Kirk do that tremolo part in Fade to Black? I can't figure it out at all.

Can you be more specific? In which moment of the song does that occure? I can't remember of any tremolo picking parts in FTB. The intro solo is mostly alt picked, the second one is all downpicked and the outro solo is a mixture of alt picked melodic patterns and Kirk's signature awkwardly fingered arpeggios which I haven't practiced seriously, but I suppose they are either alt or sweep picked.
Playing Metallica really helps to get the basic picking, rhythm and soloing techniques down. Way to go!

As for the acsending part in MOP the whole song is downpicked including that. With a little practice it's super easy.
