One thing I do is practice to fixed tempo backing tracks when I am bored with the metronome. I still play the same exercises, but fitting them harmonically into a song is an extra challenge and adds interest smile.gif

Yes that's a real good idea as it forces you to adapt the stuff you know to a real-life-musical-situation (almost! wink.gif )

I guess that's what happens first time you try some things you have been practicing on - with a band. So why not practice that situation at home first..?

I will try to keep it short

First hour i pratice the petatonic scale in all positions for about 10 min. Then it's 10 minutes of playing excercis in triplets. Next 10 i'll spend playing the cromatic scale up and down all over the fretboard as 16th notes. Then 10 minutes playing using 16th note triplets. Then the next 20 min i spend on practecing 3 or 4 licks wich involve triplets or 16th note triplets

Next hour is all legato. I spend some time with the legato licks from the 101 videos. Practice both of pavel's legato video's (these are really great) and some legato stuff from petruci's rock dicipline dvd

Next hour is diveded between 2 techniques. I'll do a half our of sweep picking. Same exercices and get them up to speed then practice new ones. Next half hour i spend on tapping. Same story as above

the 4th hour i devote entirely to learning lessons from the rythem guitar section. Currently i'm learning the rock and rythem lessons 1 and 2 and the clean accoustic lesson from pavel

the 5th hour i spend the first half hour on alternate picking. Currentley learning alt picking lesson 1. And the second half i spend on the yngwie malmsteen video lesson one

I keep this up every day. And take 1 day in the week rest. I play no guitar by try to learn something new on the theory part. and before every hour i warm up 10 min playing the major scale up and down the neck

Right now I can't view the lessons because my time has expired but I'll be getting back to the lessons by probably some time in May!
But usually I practice 1hr-2hrs a day!
