I'm struggling with this riff from the song Six by All That Remains...

It goes as follows:


It's played as sixteenth notes at 196 BPM. I know I can't play it that fast yet, but I want to know if you guys would use pure alternate picking, or semi alternate. As in, when go from the D3 down to the D2, would you pick the A string with an upstroke and then keep going or just a DUDU for everything?

I would use pure alternate, but I use UDUD just because I like to start with an upstroke for some reason.
turn your pick sideways and it'll go over the string faster, and then use alternating.
Ya, I said it...

I'm a beast... you can't deny it.
