    "sound"?

    Well, if you are talking about sound versus actual notes, he's using some overdrive and he is digging in really really hard.

    he uses some overdrive, now i didnt no that, on the high A's when it sound slike he spoping them, but i think hes just plucking them hard, but i cant seem to bend the note the right way to get the sound hes gettin, on the tab it says u bend it every time u hit it but that doesnt work, i've got it pretty close but not close enough

    Try plucking really hard near the neck, that's how you get that aggressive sound that sounds as if you're popping the strings.

    Yeah, he kinda bends without melodic intent. Wanking if you will. But his popping sound is because his action is set really low, and he's really playing hard. That's the sound of the strings bouncing off the metal more or less.

    It's a program that slows down the song, without changing the pitch. That way it is easier to distinguish fast played notes.
