Tab below:



So
1) Is this played with economy picking (I think), or alternate picking?
2) Assuming economy, is it:
a. D D D U D D D D
b. D D U U D D D D
c. Something else?

I think it's B above, but not sure. Is there a way to tell, or is it just whatever is simplest to play?

I play it like this with a pik or with fingers:

DDUUDUDU

So alternate kind of I think.

But all down strokes work anyways also so whatever.

Edit: On reflection I like Zac's better lol

ok, i dont know alot of theory, so this might sound stupid.....but if its single notes, does it really make any difference if its up or down stroke? Maybe it helps, but i cant see (hear) any difference.

Everything makes a slight tonal difference
- Whether it's a D 10th fret 6th string or a D 5th fret 5th string
- Whether you pick it or hammer on/pull off
- Whether it's a rest stroke or a free stroke
- How much you accent the note
- Any vibrato
- Etc.

It's hard to pick out hammer ons/pulloffs vs picked notes, slides vs bends, which string a note is being played on, etc when you first start out. But with enough playing by ear, you pick up the subtle differences.
