master of puppets=no trem, except if you want to do whammy harmonics on the 2nd solo

tremolo pucking is like 00:30 of eruption by van halen. it sounds like

-12-12-12-12-12-12-14-14-16-16-16, etc, but it really is

(?=trem picking)
-12(?)-14(?)-16(?), etc.

i can't tremelo pick to save my life. It's beyond me for some reason. It's not a really common technique so i don't worry about it too much.

Tremolo is a word not exclusive to guitar. Tremolo is the rapid repetition of ONE NOTE to create the illusion of sustain. Ergo, tremolo picking is the rapid repition of one note by picking extremely fast (creating the auditory illusion that you're not in fact tremolo picking).

Tremelo is a municipality in Italy.

When I first started playing, I used to get confused between tremolo picking and using the trem whilst picking.

Check out this vid:

The note that it seems like it has a endless sustain, is the one that is tremolo picked.
