hey there..

Im wondering what is the hardest riff or song for your right hand (because its so fast or maybe just downpicking)

I think..

Creeping Death is manageable
Master Of Puppets hurts after a while xD

The Fast Raining Blood Riff is ok as you dont have to play it the whole song

Rain by Trivium.. hard

but..

SUFFOCATING SIGHT by TRIVIUM ... this song I still cant nail.. the first fast parts are ok but the part with the fast picked powerchords is like untouchable for me.

Master of Puppets hurts after a while. And they use all down strokes! How the hell?!?!

a lot of death metal songs that are just trem picking for like 3 minutes straight
ESP Custom Shop 40th Anniversary Eclipse
ESP Standard Eclipse-II
Ibanez AF85VLS

A lot of Necrophagist songs seem like they'd have their moments, but your left hand will be spazzing out enough not to notice.

Oh, Funeral Fog. 6 minutes of nonstop tremelo picking.

SO if Janne and Alexi did a gay porn, would I be the only one willing to buy it?

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

Classical tremolo picking is very simplistic, yet very exhausting sometimes.

Villa-Lobos also has some tricky right-hand studies.

Oh, do classical pieces for classical guitar count ? if so, I got a million of those, I thought we were talking about pick users Madcap...

John Cage's 33 degrees 6 minutes (Something like that) which is just silence for about 6 minutes. The hard part is sitting with your guitar in your lap and avoiding the temptation to play a note, for a whole 6 minutes.

works out your hand and pinky. Way harder than metallica. all downpicking.

It depends on each person. The master of puppets riff is not hard for me, but that's only because I've been playing for some time now (I'm guessing you haven't for that long yet). So for some people a riff can be the easiest thing to play, while for others is a pain in the ass; is all about experience.

Probably some hybrid picking stuff. Look it up.

Willie adler from lamb of god can mess some **** up with rythms, but hes way more of complicated right hand ****.

The hardest songs ive ever attempted to play is from the worst band in the world. Well, theyre just to experimental. Behold the arctapus. Theyre rythms are so random and non repeating, youll never get it perfect.

Nope, no sig here.

Can I never accomplish steady 3-beat tremolo in proper tempo without lessons?

Another problem for me is to make the tremolo accurate, only touching the correct string.
