I didn't know weather this is where to post this question but I don't want to shit anyone

Um I've been playing guitar for almost 2 years, and when I say I’ve been playing that means like ALOT I didn't put it down for a month, didn't eat or sleep and stuff so I've gotten the most out of the time, but anyway on to the question...

Is it better to use a Thin/Soft pic, or to use a Think/Hard pic? I started on hard, and then after about a year I went to soft (.46mm - .48mm). But now I don't know what to go with? So what’s better, for sound and stuff, which should I use? I can use either quite comfortably.

(I'm new to the forum if you can't tell, but I'm not new to the site)

If you want to play some fast arpeggios and tremolo picking or let just sau METAL, use a thick and hard pick. I use 1,5mm Dunlops and Dunlop Jazz III's, I don't know those thickness.

yeah that’s one of the reason I was asking, thanks, and I wanted to know where I could get some good exercise(s) that help for some one that can’t really do them, I can do them going down (as in back up towards me) but I can't go up (down stroke) no where near as well. Like I can do the solo in Conquer All by Behemoth (because it’s mainly that way) but I'm having trouble with going up, down, up down etc)

Learn Everytime I Die from COB. the intro riff is very simple, and you will learn the updowntechnique.

Yea,

Stick to a thicker firmer pick. I like the Dunlop Jazz picks, I use the jazz shape with the tortex feel. A must for fast alternate picking, sweeping, trem picking, and just flat out CONTROL.

so should I use thin or think

and yeah I'll learn it, also does it matter about tuning? I tune to B starndard becuase I love the sound, but because the strings are looser does that make a problem?

0.11 or .011, they're not tight, but they're not loose

Yup, I do.

Just who is it that you would like to know how to play? Once you know who that is then find the tabs a practice until you figure out the tabs perfectly and then why there fucking wrong! Now find live video to confirm and amaze yourself of just how wrong the tab is. Thank God for the Net or we might never find guitar lessons. Practice for a few more years; then no one wants to play with you because you smoke their ass at playing now. You learn playing music is from within you. You and who you find that share the same dream of music in their soul. You believe in the people that might like to listen to you and you go to listen to them. The world is not full of guitar players, so to most people you are something that they will never put the time into learning themself, but they do enjoy watching you. That is what making music is about.

Take time now. Fine tune your music skills into a killing machine.

I imagine it could break if you wank the holy shit out of it excessively, but their built pretty tough. My Ibanez takes a beating and it's still in great shape, so give er hell.

I have a question:
I read about two ways to tune to drop C. One is to just drop the low E string to C, the second way is to tune to drop D and then drop all of the strings to C tuning. Which one is right?
And another question:
How would I tune a 6-string to be in the same tuning/sound similar to a 7-string?

The guitars I have that are tuned to C use the second method you described, drop D, then tune down whole step, which ends up basically as tuned (low to high) C G C F A D.

For the seven string sound you are talking about, you can just drop this tuning one half step further. But that's not really like a 7 string, butthe guitars I tune to B (th 6 string ones) I do in this manner. It ends up being something like B F# B E G# C#. But this is really considered just "drop B" tuning. A 7 string is tuned B E A D G B E, you could tune the 6 strings to B E A D G B, but you will lose the organization of how a 6 string is set up.

Or you tune to B E A D F# B and the setup of a 6 string stays intact.

will i ever be able to play like paul gilbert if i dont use strict alternate picking? I play a economy picking style, and theres certain patterns that are trickier to play than if i learnt it with alternate picking...is this just lack of practice? Will i be able to pick up speed if i pick up the practice on some of these patterns?
