    At the Gates - Cold verse riff picking

    Just wondering how others pick the main riff? I straight alternate pick starting with a downstroke.

    Haven't played that riff in a while but when I just picked up the guitar now I started right away to play up, down, down. Up every open note up and then down the two muted.

    But alternate worked just as fine. Listening to the album it sounds like this was the way they used when recording
