Your opinion is noted and promptly ignored. Zaph's right on the money.
If you practice something over and over again, you get good at playing that thing. Practicing scales appears to have a different effect because a lot of music (especially faster music) tends to contain fragments of linear scales, which you've practiced to the point that playing them is no trouble.
I can generally alternate pick some complex lines at around 10 notes per second, but when I'm doing simple minor scales straight up and down, I can eke out around 14 notes per second. That's because (1) I've practiced scales a fair bit and (2) linear scale patterns are really simple as far as fingering and picking go.
There is no such thing as "lead alternate picking", only alternate picking (it's the same mechanic regardless of context or string). Of course practicing those songs made you a better guitarist and improved your alternate picking, but you'll see the most improvements in things that are most similar to the songs you've learned and the least improvement in things that are unlike the songs you've learned. For example, more Slayer songs will come to you rather easily, but Shawn Lane-style licks might still elude you.
All of that said, congrats. Hitting the bigger numbers on the metronome is always a good feeling.
Why the hell does everyone refuse to alternate pick through stuff like this?...yea alt picking is hard...I suspect most are either coop-outs to lazy to put in the time to develope optimal picking technique...or are Hetfield wannabe's...he's not even that great of a guitarist...he cant improv/solo/alternate pick/sweep/ect...all day long he's just down picking open E-strings and playing power chords
u d u d u d u d u...ect not that tricky
If it aint broke, don't fix it
because sods law, you'll do something silly.
But doing it yourself is pretty easy.
Intonation is easy to do and hard to mess up.
Same with string height (If you feel the need)
Not really much else to do.
18 in Alberta and another province (Ontario?)
The record companies are doing fine, it's the bands that suffer. If anything you should download the album and go to the bands website and make a donation via paypal or something of that sort in the amount of the album. Cut out the middleman.
I'll never understand why people will illegally download an album and then buy it later. It doesn't make it any less illegal.
Any fucking place on the net, what's wrong with you?
James Hetfield doesn't have the range he used to, so that's why they did this.
comfort is subjective. I'm a fan of a wider neck, my hand tends to cramp playing thin ones. If you prefer a slim neck, then yes, the Ibanez is going to be preferable to the Jackson.
At least give a reason why.
I'd recommend trying out a few Ibanez first, then deciding for yourself. Decide what your needs are too, if you're into Hetfield and Slash, a Les Paul could be the way to go. If you're etching more into lead playing a floyd rose can be very useful learning other people's styles.
Just my 2 cents. Guitars can be pretty subjective, I can't stand Jackson (don't flame me) they just don't feel comfortable to play. A lot of people hate Ibanez necks because they're very thin, but I love that so it works for me.
Try and look used too, I got a great deal on my S.
Well, screams aren't death growls, so it looks like you're in the clear
Most of it? Nearly all of the first wave thrash is in E Standard I think, although the German bands went down to D that early I think.
I'm still weary about calling Sylosis a thrash band, still one hell of a good band though, try some of their stuff.
