Alternate Picking Technique

I don't like telling people exactly how to pick, since almost every professional guitar player I've seen picks in a different way.

With time and practice, I think every player will develop his/her own picking technique.

One good tip, however, is to use your wrist as a pivot point, and not your elbow. Small, effective movements seem to work the best for most players.
