Notice the anacrusis/upbeat. See how the note C is targeted with the three chromatic notes starting on an “Up” stroke for alternate picking. It is essential to count time in order to carry the rhythmic phrasing as you connect it all together.

Example 2:

This time we have an upbeat with 4 [even notes] grouping. Again, the target tones are set up in the bar as part of the line. Notice, how the chromatic notes set up the key notes on the “Strong” beat.
