1234 4321 is fine, then some picking exercises like Alternate Picking Etude With String Skipping by Emir or Palm Mute Workout by Dejan.

I try to never bend a string before I am warmed up because it's the best way to hurt my fingers.

Sometimes I tune my guitar as well. tongue.gif

I warm up with Marcus' right hand workout: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Metal-...t-Hand-Workout/

I then make a few failed attempts at Emir's slow rock solo: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/slow_rock_solo/

Then I run through all major scale positions, pentatonic positions, minor 7, Dominant and Major 7 arpeggio shapes emphasizing AP.

Then I usually feel pretty bad about myself and I look for guitars on eBay.

First couple of measures from the solo in pearl jams alive. Seems pretty random, but I learned that years ago and its engraved in my brain, it's the first thing I play if I just want to relax and have some fun.

I just warm up a little bit with 1234, 1423, 2413 exercises just to get the hand back in action from the rest and start to jam a little bit with some catchy licks

This is a GREAT question! It's a very personal thing of course and is different for each player. I personally start out playing some scale runs at various spots on the neck. I always give my hands 15 minutes or so to warm up. Before I start playing, I'll do some hand stretches, the start running major and minor scales just to get loose.

Usually its a simple lick or scale run. Then I do some simple slap and pop playing (because I tune my bass tone in relation to that sound/technique).

I usually go through some basic warmup excersises and chord positions. Depending on how much time I have, I might move on to stretching and things like that ^^ If I am learning something new that I will be doing slow anyway, I will just start doing that. smile.gif

Usually it's open strings, E chord and couple of more chords to determine the tuning precisely, then whatever is on the menu biggrin.gif

99% of the time I start with a bluesy improvisation to get in the mood, and to slowly warm up my hands. After a while I start practicing scales/techniques and I eather end up playing my fave songs, composing my own stuff or simply begin to record something for GMC biggrin.gif

It changes for me every once in a while. But right now I am using Emir Hots riffing variations. https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Riffing_Variations/ at about 80% though.

Had a guitar hanging, just about waist high, and we are going to play these things until the day we die.

First thing I do is a simple, slow pedalstep exercise that works out my little finger to get it warmed up since it's usually the hardest of my fingers to get in sync. To avoid injury, the first pedalsteps are usually boxed in the first 6 notes of the aeolian and locrian modes so I'm not having to stretch before I'm warm. Once I'm semi-warm, I'll take a short rest, then finish off the rest of the positions to get the stretch factor in there.

here's an example of one of the pedalsteps I use to get warm. Also, I play unplugged to make sure I'm hearing the proper contact with the pick and string, and normally a metrinome, but not in this vid.
