Say it was this simple 1, 2, 3, 4 scale… You’re saying you can play that (^) part okay, but when you have to go back up in reverse like this… … you run into trouble? Well my advice (aside from good old fashion practice) might be to try going from the low E string to the high E in the same pattern that you’re having trouble playing in reverse. Meaning try practicing this: --------------------
