Mixed-up Melodic Picking Practice

This is mainly an exercise for alternate picking. I tried to make it melodic to prevent boredom. I also borrowed some notes from the e harmonic minor scale (which is just a regular minor scale with a #7) to make it interesting and to get the diminished arps in there. Some parts require some quick position shifting and finger stretching...It is mainly an exercise after all. Try straight alternate picking before venturing into sweep picking and legato stuff. Try it at 150 if you are so inclined...(I'm sticking to 80 myself...) Let me know if you want me to detail some of the fingerings.
