First I want to make sure that I’m understanding you correctly. 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:

the above exercise is a chromatic exercise,it's not so difficult too read this tap(you call it diagram but it's called a guitar-tab)
it works like this:if we take the 3th tab ,instrumental case gives you as an excercise
the numbers stand for the fret the note is played on

when reading a tab the string on top is the high E-string(or the thin E-string),the string at the bottom is the low E-string

so when reading this tab you should start on the low E-string on the 4th fret with the pinky,3th fret with the ring-finger,2nd fret with the middle-finger,and 1st fret with index finger

when you played all four these notes then move to the next string(the A-string) and do the same there etc...just remember to start with the pinky and not with the indexfinger
so have fun practicing

Ah-Ha,

I found this in response to my last question on downscale speed.

Any other hints would be appreciated.
