Am I s'pose to palm mute the low E notes? Do I palm mute the whole section?

actually I palm mute selectively over the main riff. I believe so does Dime. But it's rather light palm muting. Use all downstrokes to imitate his sound.

actually :P dime did a double track, one with no palm muting and light gain and with light palm muting and heavier gain and mixed the 2 to get the sound on the album, i believe live however he used no muting at all and a healthy dose of gain/distortion.

edit : alt picking ftw. dime used it. so should you

of course he did. But to get the album sounds...downstrokes is the br00talz.

You know in an old old Guitar World interview he said he used all downstrokes for recording. But..he also said "I invented the inverted power chord" in the same interview. Good ole high-as-a-kite dimebag.

^ lol, im sure he was being sarcastic (either sarcastic, REALLY high or both...... prolly so high the sarcasm was missed)

i only mention alt picking because all the vids i've seen of him playing it live he uses alt picking. he might have done downstrokes only for the recording though. i say alt pick it, if you have a good alt picking technique the difference is virtually unnoticeable.
