Is it just me or is it easier to play it with two 5's instead of 5 and 0? For me it's easier to go faster because I can alternate pick faster on just the low E string. Which way would you play it/think its better to play?

The open string is going to have a slightly different tone to the fretted A on the E string, but if you find it doesn't make any noticeable difference then by all means play it your way.

Well then would you still pick it down, up, down, or would you economy pick it or whatever?
#4
Play the first 2 notes with downstrokes, then an upstroke when moving back to the E string, then 2 downstrokes etc. So yeah, economy picking.

Oh no wonder it was so difficult for me! I was trying straight ups and downs.

Well some people would prefer to play it that way, but I prefer to use economy picking because its.. well.. more economical :P
