I would like to ask Zsolt about the exercise, but you're welcome guys to leave your opinion.

My question is regarding the attack of the string when we move from one to the next above. When Zsolt is doing an ascending part he first attacks every string from below (upstroke), but when he is doing descending parts he attacks the next string in the same way (upstroke again). I don't know why but when I have to do the descending part my head tells me to attack the next string from above (downstroke), for me it's more "symmetrical" to the ascending part, nearer to a strict alternate picking, but in this case I would have to modify the exercise to apply this pattern of upstroke-downstroke for descending.

So my question is, should I work the exercise as it is even it costs me a lot to change my playing, or both ways of picking are good? I mean, will I take some advantage of doing as you do it Zsolt?
