Hello!

I've started paying attention to my picking technique and I've noticed that when I am alternate picking I am not taking into account the rhythm groupings, note lengths or rests in songs I play.

I have added down and upstrokes to an example of a Rock School Grade 5 piece to show how I alternate pick.

Am I correct in thinking that I'm actually doing it wrong and it should actually be played as I've drawn below?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!!

Use what you find is most natural for youself.
If speed is an issus, then you could do an analyze of what you are doing to see
if there is a more economical way to get through.

Think about it, do you belive e.g. Prince ever sat down and thought about his rhythm playing
in such details? Keep it natural, I belive if flows most easy then.

You just feel what is most natural for yourself.
Can be something different from how other players like to play.
