From about 1:36 - 1:40, Alexi plays a few lead notes, the last of which are whammied. My question is how exactly do you get it to sound like that? Is he picking each note while he is whammying? When I try to do that, it doesn't come out to smooth. Seems to work better with pulloffs, but he whammies each note. And is he pressing in the bar before each note, and then releasing the bar as he hits each one?

Sorry for the noob questions, but I'm still quite new to the world of floyd roses.

That seems to be what he's doing.

Probably picking each one.
