Hello I've been playing for two years so I'm not that bad of a guitarist but I have a question that's bugging me. When you play fast tremelo picked notes you generaly play really fast so it's too hard to count the notes which makes it hard to understand how much notes your actually playing do most guitarist's play what sound's right on the tab or do they play the number of notes on the tab? because I find it difficult to figure out how many notes I'm playing when I'm playing fast death metal music. Thank's in advance for help on my question.

it doesn't matter how many times you play the note, if it's true tremelo picking, as long as you keep in time with the song.

That's what I thought.

you can count only the downstrokes to make time-keeping easier

You can accentuate at every group of notes, say, 4 notes. In the John Petrucci Rock Disciplne video its explained this very well.
Besides being a guitar player, I'm a big fan of the guitar. I love that damn instrument. Steve Vai
