    Don’t try to mimic it. If you angle your pick like most of us, it’ll be a lot of effort to switch for no real reason. Just make sure the edge of your pick is digging in, not the flat side.

      Generally, me too. But I see so many people doing it, and it looks simple. But it isn't. I was just trying to do it, and it was awful. Embarrassingly bad.

        Glenn Tipton gives a masterclass in chug.

            I was about to say the same. Marty and Ola pick like that all the time. It's not like they're switching to it when they need a chug.

              In addition to everything else, I'll add that when recording you should use less gain and double or triple track your parts to get them to sound huge but clear.

              My trick (which probably lots of people use) for making single note riffs sound big is to triple track, pan the two worst takes hard left and right and turn them down maybe 9 dB; leave the best take on full up the middle. Having the other two takes turned down means you don't get weird phasing effects if your timing isn't perfect, which can be an issue with traditional double tracking.

                I angle mostly standard way, but from 88 until 2004 I did it the opposite like Marty, Ola, and for me a better reference would be Chuck from Death.
                Since switching, which was really only hard for the first few weeks, I hold the pick like Paul Gilbert teaches so that you can instantly angle either way or flat without really changing your grip. You just adjust your hand position and the amount of flex in your knuckle joints.

                  Just listen to it and learn the tune

                    I was forced to use the chug. In my early days I was playing with so much stacked gain I kept my palm on the bridge to control feedback. The chug became a big part of my writing and playing.

                      Ah. Who would've guessed that "chugging" and the Spice Girls had anything in common!

                        Well, you have to take it to the next level =) And I can also tell you what to read for general development. I recommend to read about Frankenstein, it is a very life story and there you can learn a lot of interesting things for yourself, which can then be transferred to the music. Look it up yourself and read an essay about it, you could check here for that and learn more. It will also help you look at the story from different angles.

                          At this point, I can chug on an acoustic.

                              Install your Livewire Metal in something+change strings to 13's, tune down to C#, and reintonate for C#.

                                I put bratwursts on my guitar and tune down to V-double-flat and play through a custom Tube Screamer with stereo outputs into a pair of Mega/Booger Quadruple Rectifiers into ninety-six 8x32 cabinets.
