2 note per string patterns give you a broader technique abilities when playing mate, so you can express yourself even better. Lots of times while playing you will need to use just 2 notes on one string, so this technique is one of the essentials.

Yeah, I know, it was actually a stupid question... But 2 notes per string is so hard to play fast. smile.gif

Its essential to learn the scale boxes in 3 notes per string (diagonal right across the strings)and the coventinal old boxes that goes verticaly up and sits over the chord(for the most part)
The non 3 note per string scales have a two note grouping in amongst the 3 notes and this alone works you on playing two notes up to speed with the 3 note strings:)
If one just plays the 3 note shapes,then there is a great chance they will fall on their back when attemping fast Carl Verheyen or Eric J pent licks that need quick explosive 4 note groupings using 2 notes per string as their hands are sync'd to 3 note runs
A lot of Paul Gilberts arps are string skipped with big two note per string phrasing.

Nuno from extreme does the same two note per string phrasing on his arps in Play With me.Thats another good exercise to use so download that powertab and have neoclassical fun:)
