While it's mostly used in fast leads, alternate picking can be very useful in the faster parts of riff.
Most metal players will tell you to use downstrokes only if you can, because it just sounds better - you get a much chunkier sound. Sometimes this is just not possible, and you will have to resort to alternate picking.
There is no secret to becoming a fast alternate picker. You have to put in the time. Start slow with a metronome or drum machine and gradually build your speed up.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
