play it retardedly slow, and keep working faster, just like anything really. theres no trick to economy picking, it may seem unproductive to play that slow, but doing it and sticking with it will yield results

i think u misunderstood me dude, but thanx anyways.

what i meant was, i cant go back to alternate picking 3 notes per string.. i got down economy picking real good..

i also know all about playing it slow really.

The main sucky part is that when i try to alternate pick again, it stumbles all over..

thanx for d help tho..

I don't know what other advice we can give you if you used to know how to alternate pick but can't anymore. Practice makes perfect.

What I always do for this sort of thing is upstroke the first note of the higher pitched string and downstroke the first note of the lower pitched string.

So what is the issue exactly? Are you losing your timing? Have you tried just playing along to a metronome at a moderate speed?
