Ok what are must techniques I should learn aside from palm muting? I have decided just to put aside time and perfect technique and get everything done smoothly seeing how about the only song that I can play well is Three days Grace Never too late, and the one I could easly play on my bass seven nation army... So what techniques should I defiantly spend time learning? If site information the subject would be good, I prefer ones with pictures but if not I can always look through the stuff here on this site as well hehe.

alternate picking and string skipping I got pretty much down, though don't think I heard of legato though sounds familiar.

Try some harmonic techniques, like pinch or tapped harmonics. They can sound real good if you use them right
Oh **** I gotta do vibrato

Legato is like hammer on/pull off/slides.
It makes your playing sound smoother, which is never a bad thing

Practice hammer on and pull offs, and constantly watch your playing position. Being comfortable and being in a good playing position are 2 different things. Make having good posture comfortable.

Play some chromatics (1-2-3-4, 2-3-4-5, 7-8-9-10 etc.) 4 notes in a row, up and down the neck, up and down the strings making sure that you pick the exact time you fret the string. This is a good way to practice accuracy and stamina depending on how long you do this.
This will make alternate picking become more natural.

Do string skipping with chromatics jumping from E to D to A to G to e to B to e or something more like E to A to E to D to G and so on.

Its very wise to play scales and bump up the speeds to become more technical.

Yeah figured if I practice and get all the techniques down and do scales than it should allow me to play more advanced songs by the time i get those down.
