I am just practicing my speed picking. I am doing excercises off one of Kris's old videos from I'm ooing what i've been told. Pratice at a certain speed until you get it clean, then up the temp etc but how the hell does Kris speedpick that fast and kep it clean. Does effects make him sound clean?

Yeah, practice is kind of the most annoying word you can here but it does help! smile.gif

The way speed pickers sound clean is by something called muting. Yes this one takes practice as well. It's basically done by muting the strings above and below the string that you're picking. The string below is muted by the fretting hand finger, by slightly bending it over the string below it instead of having it vertically pointed down. The other string is muted by the picking hand, by placing the thumb side palm onto it so that it can't ring out. This is so that you don't accidentally hit the string and ring it when you're picking and when you switch strings you'd get a lot of string noise. Hope this helps
