I'm currently learning the song Technical difficulties by Racer X, and I'm quite puzzled about what technique i'm supposed to use on some licks.

|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------|
|--5-----4-----5-----4~-------------------|
|----3-3---3-3---3-3-----------7-9-10-----|
|-----------------------7-8-10------------|

Is the part in bold supposed to be picked, or played legato?
That particular lick, and the other one repeats itself in other octaves in the song.

-Thanks
