Hey everyone. I'm stuck trying these two licks from Joe Satriani's 'Always With Me, Always With You'. Here's the first one. The second is fairly similar.

E - 9- - - 9- - - 9- 11- -12- -14- -|
B - - -12- - 12- - - - - - - - - - - - -|
G - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - --|
D - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- --|
A - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - |
E - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - |

What do you think is more comfortable given that both licks are played at not so slow speeds? Inside picking or outside picking?

in almost all cases it's easiest to use economy picking (except when you want a certain sound). economy picking means you pick in the direction you want to go to for the next note/string, that means here it's probably best practice to use 'outside' picking (never heard that name before) even though it's possible to play either way
