how does John Petrucci get that rhythm in the intro to glasgow kiss? i know that its not sweep picked, but alternate picking doesnt sound right either.

I used to sweep it, but then I started alternate picking it cause it sounds better to me with alternate picking.

Petrucci uses alternate picking but if it doesn't feel right to there is no reason why u can't use sweeps.

I don't sweep it. And it sounds fine.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

And it feels more natural to just alternate pick it.
