I was wondering how to replicate Dimebag Darrell's Shredding. From all the videos I've watched, I don't see him sweep that must. It seems to be all alternate picking to me. So how can I practice those fast runs he does? Certain exercice I can do?

And is his picking style a factor? I mean, Marty Friedman picks in a different way than most guitar players so maybe Dime did too...

For an example of the runs I'm talking about listen to the last solo in the song Shattered or Cemetary Gates (maybe even Psycho Holiday).


"Baptized in a firefight. Hot blood running cold as ice. 44 minutes of target practice. All hell's breaking loose.
Outgunned. Watching the force come to a firefight with a pocket knife.
Getting schooled until they shot Achilles' heel and brought down the beast."

Picking style has nothing to do with it - it's just overall skills and personal style. Personal style is something you can't copy but you can copy certain licks. Just practice Alternate Picking in general - any AP lesson here is good for that smile.gif
