Hey guys, should I be trying to alternate pick while hybrid picking? I'm just starting hybrid but it's hammered in my brain that I should almost always alternate pick. Any thoughts?

What? Are you sure you know what hybrid picking means? The wording almost seems like you're talking about economy picking.
Hybrid picking involves use of the common picking technique with a pick, and addition of the fingerstyle technique - a hybrid of the 2, therefore hybrid picking.

I see no way in which alternate picking is relevant :s

No I mean Hybrid picking not economy picking. When I do my downstroke or upstroke with the pick though should I alternate next time it's the picks turn to play and not a finger?

I do what's most economical really. I only apply strict alternate picking to certain pieces where I want that staccato sound. I think you should do whatever works for you and what you think sounds best
