Hey guys, I really want to be able to play this song but I have no idea how to downpick or alt pick the really fast open notes in the riffs of this song. How should i tackle this song?
learn easier songs.
if you can't alternate pick then just get used to alternate picking before learning a song that uses lots of alternate picking.
Alternate picking has lost meaning i've said it that many times.

The thought of you humping her limp body is hilarious.

Kill The King has a lot of alternate picking of just 1 note... might be worth looking at.

In the end, fact means nothing,
its all about perspective
