This is one of the most common patterns used in metal lead, and it's very common to only use legato here. That means we will just pick the very first note to get us going, and then it's all pull-offs and hammer-ons from there.

This is a very good exercise for your fretting hand, but make sure you take breaks and stretch every now and then, because legato is much tougher on your fretting hand, compared to when you also pick the notes.
