for a lick or speed lick like this with three notes. would it be faster and/or better to do constant down up picking or down up down down ( doing a down pick everytime you switch string towards the ground and pick up when switching strings towards the sky) I am just making sure i am doing it correctly i am doing the down up but go down when switching strings down/ and switching strings up i do a up stroke. I hope this isn't too confuseing. thanks in advance

You mentioned both alternate picking and whats called economy picking. Personally, Im better at alt picking, but i wouldnt even think about the picking. if you can play it fast and smooth, pciking doesnt really matter that much.
