hi,

i'm learning a song that requires tremolo picking, this is part of the tab:


  *     *
--8-----10-------
--10----12-------
-----------------
-----------------
-----------------
-----------------
*=tremolo pick



in the song, it sounds so smooth and fluent, like there's only 1 string being played. when I pick this however, it's very obvious I'm alternate picking 2 strings due to the sound. I've tried tilting my pick and that seems to help a little. can anyone suggest any tips on how to make this sound 'better'

Are you sure those are not harmonies played on two guitars?

Otherwise, I dunno.

I'm sure.

i get that too

i think generally it is usually harmonies

i imagine that it would possibly be recorded seperatly, like each string, to keep clarity and fluency.


dunno tho just my guess

Which song is it?
R.I.P. My Signature. Lost to us in the great Signature Massacre of 2014.

Well maybe they used one pick between the thumb and first finger and another between the second and third fingers?

...Okay, maybe not.

But seriously, like they said, they could have been recorded seperatly. Or the key may just be alot of practice.

Chop Suey by System of a Down, this is played over the intro.


8   10   7   12
10  12   8   13


That's the riff being played in the intro, on the 1st and 2nd strings.
