OK i've decided to work on my speed and alterante picking and tackle timing at the same time. I'm using an electronic metronome (Boss TU-80) so I can set the speed etc...i have it set so that it clicks each time the dial hits its furtherst point (the little dots on either side) and I pic on each click, I am using this excercise to make it a little more interesting

6-7 ascending up the the strings low-high then high to low

but i several postion so like

5-7
6-8
7-10 (hard on the pinky)

I've started doing it for around an hour each night I started a couple of nightas ago and have done 115 120 bpm i have decided to move in 5 or 10 beat leaps depending on how i think i have done on the previous speed,

do you think I'm going about this right, or is there a better excercise?

I started on Avenged Sevenfold's Bat Country. It's so much like an excercise its crazy. But it is basically a chromatic scale on the high e string.
