It is very easy. All you do is move the pattern up one fret when you get to the next string. You must use all your fingers for this or it is pointless.

This helped me ALOT with alternate picking and improving my fourth finger.

oh well, i developed one to learn sweep picking, grab a perfectly round coin (dollar coin for you aussies) and use it as a pick, it forces you to do the sweeping motion.
