Which one do you use?
I always used economy picking. It just came natural for me.

I do alternate when plaing on just one string and economy with changing strings, which I guess all together is economy picking.

never heard of economy picking, what is it exactly?

You alternate pick when on one string, but when you change string, you just pick towards the direction of the string. There's a good economy picking lesson here.

I prefer alternate, as I feel like I have more dynamic control and I like the back and forth feel. I use economy picking sometimes when I'm playing arpeggios, that's about it.

I prefer Economy.

I was sad enough to go through the Frank Gambale videos and **** just to learn it.
I find it alot easyer when going across strings! And it helped my sweeing alot!

Both, depending on what I'm playing.
