I did start using that pattern and thought I had it down before I shot the video but blanked while shooting, lol. Definitely that section needs to be better on my part.Mark - great playing, as always!
If I were to critique, I'd say the fast part at ~1:00 could be cleaner by choosing a different picking pattern. Listening to the record, it sounds like there are some strategic pull-offs in there. I was having success with this pattern:
v ^ p v p
So, down, up, pull-off, down, pull-off.
