When I do it I tend to go:

D-U-D pause D-U-D pause D-U-D

Gets the most consistant sound. Just to be noted, I don't think this is actually a triplet.

if u pause its not triplets


Wanna bet?

| D pause D | D pause D |

Those are triplets.

On-topic, when alternate picking, most guitarists tend to count each pause as a note being picked and move onto the appropriate picking position when they pick the next "real" note.

Same here. It seems easier/better that way.

Like the guys said before D-U-D pause D-U-D pause D-U-D is easier.

When I pause I count it as one upstroke and continue the pattern

try to get what you play to become a habit i'm sure that D-U-D D-U-D may be easier tighter and more consistent but when you start to play fast you will find it will start to fall apart try to use hammerons and constient alternate picking so when it come to playing fast it won't fall apart during your croud inspiring solos

good luck with it
