Hi. I know downstrokes are used to give a different sound to alternate picking ("stabbing" if you will). But I just wanted some views on picking direction with like slow flowing lead parts. For example: The slow twin lead solo in master of puppets - I notice kirk plays most of the notes as down-picked. But is there really a plausible difference between using alternative and downstrokes here? I feel that as a slow lead part, it wouldn't really matter?

Sorry to drone on but I just want to know if people think there is a right or wrong way here? Or whether it just comes down to comfort?

All replies appreciated.

Cheers.

Use what you want to.

Downstrokes, alternate picking, economy picking, sweep picking, just do what you want.

i say experiment and listen-but my guess is downstrokes all the way, until it gets fast

I usually do downstrokes and some economy picking for Master of Puppets, but thats just how I am.
