I'm trying to practice the intro/verse for She Wolf from Megadeth.

At first, the way I did it was D, D-U-D, D , D-U-D. Then I figured it's possibly better to play it D, U-D-U, D, U-D-U(100% alternate picking).

My question is, should I keep practicing the way I did it first, or should I switch that to 100% alternate picking. The reason I'm asking this is because on a rythmic level, I find it easier to "break" the alternate picking a bit(that applies to any such riffs). But economy-of-motionwise(lol), the latter would be the best.

Thanks!

most people that i've seen play those kind of riffs use straight downpicking, it makes more rhythmic sense i think because the upstroke comes on the offbeat. playing it the second way may be more economical but it would also be very awkward.

Thanks, that's what I thought too. I tried playing pure alternate picking but it seems hard to have the rythm that goes with it.
