When doing more rhythmical and heavy stuff, downstrokes are recommended. Alternate picking is superior for leads though... Of course.

Just because you can jump does it mean you have to all the time?

Just because you can alternate pick doesn't mean you have to.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

I know. It's string skipping AND economy picking. String skipping isn't a type of picking, buddy.

Well, (to me) the Technical Difficulties has a similar picking pattern, and PG alternate picks on it.

They downpick it for tone reasons.

it's pretty easy to economy pick the ones that were listed... I cant imagine trying them with 100% alt though..

to me, it's hardest to alt pick things like this

Are not the forms of picking to make things more casual?
Alternate picking makes some things easyer (easyer allows to be played faster)
Economy picking as well.
Down picking, you guessed it, can make some things easyer to play too.

What bugs me the most about the opening riff is those string skips.

achokarlos did a pretty good cover... he can even lipsync-ed to the song lol.

If it was all outside picking when you alt. the whole thing I'd be fine but I tend to stick to pure alt. picking and the inside picking screws me over.

And yes, achokarlos is a damn beast.

Yeah, I do that too. Actually, I'm gonna try going up-down-up-up right now and see if that makes any difference...
