Here is more exercises!

We start of with Tapping.

This one is 3 note per string pattern in C major going ascending. You can do the same exercise descending and move it around the scale! I suggest tapping with your 2nd finger (if you are still holding pick with thumb and 1st finger).

2nd exercise is again in C major or E phrygian if you will. 8th note triplets are primary rhythm like in previous one. Tempos are there just to help you hear how it sounds. I can play this one blazingly fast like the other ones but the point is for you to find your starting tempos and work your way up! Again, tapping happens with 2nd finger while you hold pick with thumb and index finger.

3rd exercise is using Sequence in A minor pentatonic. 6tuplets are played here (6 notes per beat - also known as 16th note triplets). This is standard minor pentatonic box with the additional note from the next box. You can do this all over guitar neck its pretty awesome sequence actually I use this one a lot !

Hey Pedja,

That is great. I will implement your execises in my routine as well.
I think you need to start a new thread with this information. It will just get lost inside this thread ya think?

Again, Thanks!
Dan

From what I see, it is much better for you to work on songs which may or may not include difficult technical parts, then to practice scales etc.
That way you will be amused, and your technique will be improving. Most of the lessons here at GMC are made for that purpose. They are quite short, focusing on individual techniques or more techniques in on lesson.

I just have one suggestion to you.. other than those already mentioned..


Position yourself amongst guitar players that are better than yourself.

This goes for everything you do.. If you want to get better really fast, be around people that are better than yourself.. it works wonders.. smile.gif
