Facing an irritating wall
 
the picking pattern in the intro of technical difficulties is really irritating me, i know the picking pattern well, but everytime i attempt to play it, it just sounds god awfully messy, ive been at the riff for the best part of 2 months now and its starting to become a problem. i really need to be able to do this picking pattern cleanly. has anyone else came across this problem? how did you get past it?

Thanks :)

Practice it more slowly.

If you can't do it at a certain speed that's nearly always the answer, if it isn't then you're doing something wrong in technique terms.

Fixed. ;)

The tricky thing about that pattern is that it moves between inside and outside picking, if you're weaker at one it might be handy to isolate that particular problem. :)
