I'm trying to learn tremolo picking as a "skill" for playing hardcore-type music.
Any tips or songs that you guys would recommend to improve?

Practice is probably my favorite song right now. i play it non stop for hours on end. It's taught me a lot on how to play guitar and it really improves my skill in, not only tremolo picking, but in everything. I'm sure you don't need tabs you could probably figure it out by ear.

make sure that everything is relaxed or it will get choppy.

dwelling on past mishaps is for the weak. you must stride into the future, unabashed and prepared to fuck up yet again.

get a metronome, start out at like 150 bpm or w/e is comfortable for you, and do eighth notes for the whole 1-2-3-4 excercise up and down the neck. once that gets boring, speed it up. do this a couple of weeks and youll be burning through pics
NOPE
