    I've known the name for a while thanks to his PRS sig years back, but never really checked him out. I'll watch Jim's video after work.

Loose picking hand, putting some weight behind it, and good muting technique, and you're mostly there.
    Was thinking about this over the weekend while playing fairly low gain stuff on my Strat - it really is mostly just a matter of a very loose picking hand and fretting hand muting. Not saying I'm awesome at it, but even a moderate ability can really add a lot.
