I am trying to learn Creeping Death and the main riff is driving me mad. I can alternate pick fine, I just can't get the damn PM'ed downpicked riff. Please help on how to improve my downpicking (as fast as the Creeping Death riff).

Isn't down picking supposed to be easier? It is for me at least.
If you're PMing, I find that down pick sounds better than up pick.
Try to move your wrist instead of your whole hand if you move your whole hand to pick.

Well, yeah that would be number one. I meant are there any exercises I can do with the tech. I am trying to learn?

practice, that's all there is to know. Master it slowly and gradually build the speed up over time...might take weeks, might take months, that's just the way it is.

as teh almighty seagull said, practice.

You'll pick it up rather quickly if you playy all of your riffs with it. Though don't get too comfy with it, you'll have trouble alternate picking again.

Do it slower and then increase the tempo slowly

Ok, thank you. This is the best thing to do so far probably.
