I know you love power metal. I just wondered which songs you think are doable on guitar and mainly practice alternate picking but not too fast biggrin.gif A list of 5 would be great smile.gif

And know this isn't for your MTP entry. Honest tongue.gif laugh.gif

Also anybody else that knows about power metal can help as I know it is great for alternate picking practice as a genre.

By Alternate picking you mean like tremelo picking?

No. Picking as in up/down strokes around scales. Not tremelo picking quickly.

Songs like Speed of Light by Stratovarius. But not that quick laugh.gif

Do Angra have slower songs at all or are all power metal songs pretty quick with the picking?

I've been trying to learn Murderer by Helloween.

The point with power metal is that it is supposed to go fast

You should try Sky Chariots by Lord Weird Slough Feg. A nice mid-tempo style power metal.

I think is easier if you look here at GMC, there are a lot of lessons in that style. And start with our instructor of darkness Lian.

My mate showed us how to do it. You need fancy pants software to do it lol. My mate can do it in Sonar without changing pitch or anything but it is kind of cheating lol laugh.gif You sure you not doing a pitch change rather than a tempo change tongue.gif biggrin.gif
