When I alt pick the intro main riff to Rule The World (Kamelot) it's all kind of stop start and I fail tovestablish the proper pace but when I do it with my thumb it works perfectly. Can anyone explain this?

you have a problem with string crossing maybe?

If so, make some exercises that focus on it... hope that helps u

With your thumb? You mean down picking? Are you alternate picking the whole thing including the '12-0 13-0' part? If so try galloping and pull of to the 0.

Hope that, helps, although I'm not really sure what you're asking.

It's simply that you find it easier to use your thumb for it. If you want to improve the alt picking then do this:

Slow it down until you find a speed that you can accurately play the intro, then increase the speed in small increments. Don't increase the speed until you can play it accurately at the speed you've reached.

That ^ is the standard GT or MT reply to this sort of question so I'm sure you already knew what to do.

I alt pic with my thumb (if that makes any sense) and"12-0 13-0" bit I pull off and then alt pic the open notes.

.
But I wanna work on playing well with a pick because, in honesty, I won't be able to play death or power metal solos with my thumb >.<

Thumb, really? I can't up-pick with my thumb, because the string hits the flesh after the nail and is silenced, but then, I don't grow out my thumbnails.

But uh, yeah, standard go slow and increase speed.
