Trem picking is playing a note really fast and clean. Eddie Van Halen does it great on Eruption.

If you wanna practice trem picking, try the begining of Wasted Years by Iron Maiden. That's how i learned to pick up some speed.

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

Does it really create a tremelo effect?

When I think tremelo + guitar I think of that video I saw of Hendrix playing while turning his volume back and forth.

^thats called a volume swell, not the same thing

to do that you wrap your pick hand's pinky around the volume knob and rock it back and forth while playing

a vibrato is when you rock a "whammy bar" or "trem unit" back and forth and such... it can also be created by smoothly bending a string back and forth

and i already explained tremolo picking

I think I've always referred to tremelo picking as "speed picking" but I guess that wasn't correct. Are they somewhat the same or is speed picking different. Also I've found the best way for me to accomplish this is by locking my hand and just forcing my wrist back and forth. I know you're not supposed to tense up to much while playing but right now thats all I can do. Have you guys eventually loosened up and picked "normal," just really fast, or do you trem pick a little differently than your normal attack on the strings... hope someone can understand that...?
