hi guys, decided to learn Speak by Queensryche but just need advice on the picking of the opening riff:-

------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------16----------16---------16----------16---------16-------------|
-0--14------0--14------0--14-------0--14------0--14----------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

its played at 225 bpm, ive tried going d-d-u every three notes but it feels clunky and rushed, just wondering if this is the right way and i just need more practice or is there a more economical way of picking it?

Try going U-D-U for every repetition. It's going to be either that or pure alternate picking.

You could downpick or play it that way it but I really don't think it's supposed to be, it certainly doesn't sound like it is.
