For master of puppets
on the riff that goes

0 1 2 0 1 3 0 1 4 0 1 3 0 1 2 2

is everything alt picked?

or is the picking rhythm different?

like everybody else has said, hetfield downpicks the whole thing, but you can alternate pick it and get it to sound pretty much identical with practise
#17
Yeah, it's downpicked, Hetfield favours this for a more harder sound i believe.

though, i would find it quite funny if he actually, couldn't alt pic.
#18
all right downpicked

but is there a more technical approach to this?

i like: up down up down up down up down...

I mean my problem is that i cant downpick as fast as when I first started guitar...

Hell i can do chromatics at 170 bpm but downpicking... i cant even play master of puppets!
