When i first learned the solo that is in the beginning of fade to black, i just played it with downstrokes. It took me some while but finally i got it down , but im not able to play it very fast. I started to think about alternative picking (or maybe it is a slow form of sweep picking, I´m not sure) , and tried that out. it´s the first time i use alternative picking exept from when playing riffs, so im not very good at it. The problem is, in the beginning of the solo, the
|---14-19-14-----
|-15--------15---
|-------------16---

part, i pick the high E string with two downstrokes after eachother (the 14-19 notes) to get the pick at the right side of the string to just draw the pick against me as i pick the 14-15-16 notes. Is that the right way to do it? Becouse it doesnt sound very smooth and it doesnt increase the speed so much.
Here is the solo so you understand which one I´m talking about.

Wasn´t very easy to explain it all, so if you don´t understan, can you please take a minuite and describe how you play the solo.
Thank you.

I don't get your question, but what i know is that the part your showing is called an arpeggio, and i suggest Sweeping that one, although, i'm also having big problems with it, i've never been interested in learing sweep pickin'.
It's up to you..

okey, I´ll try to explain it better.. Where should i use down/upstrokes? on which notes?

I play the 14-19-14 like this:

14-19p14 ie i just pull off instead of hitting that last 14 so it feels smoother for me

I change the first 14 - 15 into 19s on the above strings and play it with downstrokes:
