Acoustic Guitar Alternate Picking

Our guitar lick today is part of the opening guitar intro for a song I'm working on called "Hand of Sorrow". Each guitar lick here is played twice as marked in the guitar tab with x2. The rhythm is 16th notes although you can let the open strings ring for a fuller sound. The title for this song comes from the lyrics of a new song Zakk Wylde  of Black Label Society released on "Order of the Black" called "Darkest Days". I've been struggling with inspiration lately but this album is really full of great guitar and really strong emotional playing that makes me want to get back to playing more guitar. Anyway enough of a rant here is the guitar lick.
