The interlude on Master of Puppets by Metallica. It's soft and easy.
I'm not sure, you can really practice alt. picking on any songs if you feel it's needed.
Signatures are overrated.

One that helped me a lot is a song by King Crimson called "Frame By Frame", although I used software to slow it down a little bit. There's a pentatonic lick that runs throughout the song, and it's all alternate picking. Maybe not your style of music, but Robert Fripp is a great guitarist and it's memorable...

Achilles Last Stand-Led Zeppelin

It helped me loads.
Deluxe Player's Strat
Soon-to-be(Hopefully)- Peavey Bandit

Scarified by Racer X.

It's okay, don't be scarified (lololol punz r funneh). I'm just talking about the intro. Helped me lots. Also, the The Four Horsemen/Mechanix by Metallica/Megadeth also helped.
