hey everybody...im trying to play cowboys from hell but im not really sure how i should be picking it.....is it all downpicks or alternate?
I alternate pick it works best for the required speed in that song
I downpick it because I aint too good at up picking, but dime used alternate picking, I dunno in which parts though
Lol, if you can play CBFH at full speed with downpicks, you need to be in Slayer.
lol i do, I cant up pick to save my life, I really need to start working on it, I cant play the solo though, because that HAS to be alternate picked
Alternate pick it. Also, for the first riff in the intro, start with an up pick. Makes it easier.
has anyone got any tips for up picking? any practices I should try out?
I don't have the speed for that so I use hammer-ons. It sounds terrible.
You shouldn't really replace it with hammer-ons or fully downpick it, otherwise you're not gonna get any better. Practice alternate picking it, otherwise you can't actually play it in the first place.
i can shred the sweep and a bit into the solo but i cant play the rest.
