Welcome to the Chromagym! A bit of a finger work out that gets your fingers moving and gets your finger coordination and independence going. This work out takes about 25 minutes to complete if played without mistakes.
This is based around the classic 1-2-3-4 permutations of which there are 24:
1234 1243 1324 1342 1423 1432
2134 2143 2314 2341 2413 2431
3124 3142 3214 3241 3412 3421
4123 4132 4213 4231 4312 4321
We'll be playing through each permutation starting from the 9th position and moving down to the 1st position. So hop on and play with me through this workout.
Here is the drum beat I use in case you want to practice through these without me: 24_Spiders_drums.mp3 ( 2.52MB ) Number of downloads: 14

I've been allowed to make a small announcement on the new SI (student instructor) lesson that has just been put up by...well me.
This is the start of a series of lessons and exercises that I will be uploading called Practice With Cael.
Here is the very first one, which is a 15-minute warm up routine.
Check it out and perhaps even leave a comment in the thread and a like on youtube if you feel like it.

It's important to get warmed up before you start playing, and to get you so I give you my first warm up routine. This is not about speed, so as you will notice in the video I play this at 120bpm with 8th notes. With this routine you'll have your fret hand fingers moving, you'll have some stretches in and you will have your picking hand working and warmed up. I play through the entire warm up routine here, so you can play along with me to get warmed up or get out your own drum machine or metronome at whatever speed you are comfortable with.

We start with pairs of fingers every time having the highest numbered finger be at the 12th fret. So for the first one we start with ascending at 11th and 12th fret (a half note step), descending with 11th and 10th fret. We continue this pattern till we reach the 1st fret. Then we move on to ascending at the 10th and 12th fret (whole note step) and descending at the 11th and 9th fret till we reach the 1st fret. Like this we continue through the pairs of fingers as described below.
Fingers 1 and 2: First a half note step, then whole note step and lastly one and a half note step.
Fingers 1 and 3: First a whole note step, then one and a half step, finally a two whole note step.
Fingers 1 and 4: First a one and a half note step, then a two note step and lastly a two and a whole note step.
Fingers 2 and 3: First a half note step, then whole note step
Fingers 2 and 4: First a whole note step, then one and a half step
Fingers 3 and 4: First a half note step, then whole note step
Then we move on to using a 3-note-per string pattern:
Fingers 1, 2 and 3 playing frets 10-11-12 ascending and frets 11-10-9 descending, continuing the pattern till we get to the 1st fret.
Fingers 2, 3 and 4 playing frets 10-11-12 ascending and frets 11-10-9 descending, continuing the pattern till we get to the 1st fret.
Fingers 1,2 and 4 playing frets 9-10-12 ascending and frets 11-9-8 descending, continuing the pattern till we get to the 1st fret.
Fingers 1,3 and 4 playing frets 9-11-12 ascending and frets 11-10-8 descending, continuing the pattern till we get to the 1st fret.
Finally we play 4 notes per string...
Fingers 1, 2, 3 and 4 at frets 9-10-11-12, descending with frets 11-10-9-8 untill we reach the 1st fret.
And you are now warmed up!
