How do you gallop? Its a technique I really want to learn. I already know how to like tremolo pick so I think its the next natural step.

What like stuff in Iron Maiden?

The trooper and Killers are good examples

ya kinda strum twice on the string to get the gallop or be like Steve Harris from Maiden and have fingers of steel.

Galloping means playing groups of one 8th note and two 16th notes. It is not to be confused with triplets, although it seems like 90% of the people on UG think it's the same thing.

If you want to learn it, just practice. With a metronome. Every day.

its just 3/4 timing

so up-down-up-rest really quickly

3/4 timing, what the **** are you talking about? Galloping can be used in all time signatures.

ummm just start off slow and then build up speed
make sure you do it properly though just like kyrreca said its one 8th note followed by two 16ths
