So I've just started to learn Flesh and The Power it holds by Death, and I was just wondering, on the little slow sort of sweep bit at the beginning, should I just down-pick it or alternate pick it? Because on the short fast bit at the end of it:

|----------------------------------------------|
|-------15-18-------------17-20-------------22----|
|----14-------17-------16-------19-------21----21|
|-12-------------15-14-------------17-19----------|
|-------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------|


I'm finding it a little tricky to get the right speed.

So should I alternate pick it, which will make me play it sloppier since I'm not a very good alternate picker, or should I just continue down-picking until I get it?

Alternate pick and practice until it's clean.

alternate is basic in guitar so do it the right way

I'll try it with alternate picking then.

It's really only the 19, 21, 22, 21 bit that I get frustrated with, mainly because I have to re-arrange my fingering quite quickly.

But thanks, I'll just keep practicing till it's good.

Alternate ftw

If you're having trouble getting it cleanly just slow it down until you can nail,then speed it up slowly until you can play it at normal speed.It's getting to the point that I alternate pick nearly everything as a rule,it just sounds much more fluid to me.
