Re: I need help with economy picking...
I guess there's some truth to that Morten. Economy picking has always been more comfortable to me. I used to worry about it and see it as a "weakness", but now I just see it as one of my many proclivities. I'm not advocating you abandon econo picking to stick with alternate, but certain things will feel more natural to you.
Is it the sweep motion or the combination of alternate to sweep that's throwing you off?
I would suggest trying some basic scalar/arpeggio patterns sticking with two notes on two strings to start. Work at it slowly and build speed as per usual.
