So right. I can pick fast enough.
but how can you pick for so long?
Are you supposed to pick with wrist or soemting?
because i've always found it more natrual to trem pick with your arm...and it gets tiring very fast (in this case)
how would you go about building 'arm endurance'?

yeah, i was too lazy to go back and fix them...
and according to firefox spellcheck you spelled misspellings (says this is right) wrong?
i use my arm because i can kinda do this muscle twitch type thing for some pretty fast trem picking.

The most important thing about fast picking is the control you got over it, is useless to trem pick with your arm if you can coordinate it with your fretting hand.

huh?
Im talking simply trem picking. not shredding or anything, thats a completely different thing. just simply picking constant 16ths ( or something like that) on 1 string. Not hard stuff.

For trem picking you're using the same technique for shredding.

Misirlou doesn't require any shredding of any sort though. You could play the entire song just by using your index finger and sliding it everywhere.

You've got to pace yourself so you don't get too tired to quickly. Good technique helps too. Read up on some lessons.

Start off playing the song slowly.... very slowly. So slow that you find it painful to play it so slow. Focus on clarity and proper rhythm. Once you are PROFICIENT at the slow speed.... begin to increase the speed while maintaining clarity. In no time at all you will be at the desired speed and you will be a better player by leaps and bounds.

Practice.... it's always the answer.

Well, if you can shred already with your wrist, and i mean by that doing speed picking, just use the same motion of your wrist with tremolo picking. You'll find it much easier and less tiresome.

I can't
and by shredding i dont mean like paul gilbert patterns and stuff.
more like yngwie economy picking runs. so its not really that wrist intensive. so my wrist isnt even close to fast

Well, then is a good time to start practicing speed picking using mostly the wrist movement. Once you got a decent speed (16th at 160bpm), trem picking will be second nature, because is really almost the same.
