I made a alternate picking riff/exercize, which helps the pinky develop more, since this finger is imo the weakest. It's quite a simple riff, but I felt it to be more tricky then the other stuff I play.

I got it clean at 16ths on 123bpm.

The tricky part I felt was the alternate pinky and ring finger. Maybe it's easy for you, maybe it's not. But it's good for ur pinkyyyyyy.

i love how people say the pinky is the weakest, its one of my strongest. My ring finger is the weakest, and from a biological standpoint, that makes sense. It has almost no degree of autonomy, seeing how its connected to the middle finger. but whatever, I'll still try this excersise

Tried the exercise, pretty nice. But wouldn't this be useful to guitar players of all genres?

My ring finger is the weakest, but I can still get that pattern well over 170, probably close to 190. If the pattern were pinky, middle, index, then I could do closer to 210.
