even tho ive been threw the tab many times i cant seem to :

1) get the speed
2) pick correctly.. and ideas/videos/text would be appreciated ... the part of the song im stuck on is right after the drums come in in the beginning

It is actually really easy when you learn it (obviously).

It it kinda quick, but just start off slowly and eventually start playing it progressively faster. In a few weeks you will laugh at the fact you couldn't play it!
if you look at the power tab i dont understand what those lines connecting the notes mean ... am i supposed to play this tremelo(sp) picking?
