First off... im new at this forum, so hope u guys are helpful... pretty sure u are. Ok the problem I'm having is with a solo from one of the great metal songs... Master of Puppets... I dont know how to do the tremolo work that kirk does... it says to pull the string off the edge of the neck and to fret it against the pickup... but when i do it... it doesnt sound as good... in fact it sounds like crap... wondering if any of u guys know how to pull it off...

Are you talkin about the harmonic in the middle of the solo ? on the 12th fret of the E string ?

"fretting" it against pickup.

Hi there...

do you have Powertab ? ( If not you can get it HERE (http://powertab.guitarnetwork.org) .

Then check out this file: TAB (http://www.ibreathemusic.com/forums/eric/mop.ptb)
