work on playing it like 10 times slower... make sure you have all the notes ring out... and check your tabs as well.

Ok, here goes:

1- despite common belief, not a single note of the crossroads duel is sweep picked. It's entirely alternate picking so make sure you learn it that way.

2- I don't like your right hand pick orientation to the strings. You should turn your wrist so the pick is pointing "down" rather than up. Check out this picture of kirk hammett - this is what you want to immitate (http://www.rosshalfin.co.uk/magazines/images/guitar_world-mar02-01.jpg) I used to pick just like you are but then I make an effort to change my picking technique because it was really holding me back. It took a couple of months and it felt very awkward at first but it helps a LOT in the long run. You'll be able to play faster and smoother.

3- Not to be offensive, just trying to help out but this song is above your level right now. I would look up some alternate picking excersises and practice those to death. Within a few months your ability will be at a greater level and you can attack this song again.

4- You have to use your pinky more. You're reaching a lot with your ring finger when your pinky would be used a lot more efficiently. Not using your pinky will also hold you back big time.

Anyway, hope some of this helps - just keep practicing.
