I'm gonna be making weekly schedules, dependingon what I want to focus on.

I just put this together and it's a one hour thing. I may add/take away stuff if I feel the need to.

- Warm-up (random chord playing etc,) 10 min.

- Cromatic excersise with metronomr - 5 min

- Scale theory and writing (Harmonic Minor) - 10 min

- Learning scale patterns ( Harmonic Minor) - 10 min

- Improvise in learned patterns ( Harmonic Minor) - 10 min.

- Practise new presto vivace lick with metronome - 15 min.

Now let's see how this turns out.

I suggest maybe doing less than 15 minutes of lick learning and more time on actual improvising or writing. I hope your plan works out for you, one thing that I feel is greatly missing is chord vocabulary! Don't get stuck like most guitar players where they spend 80 to 20 % ratio with soloing vs harmony playing, try to bring that to at least 70-30 or 60 - 40 in favor of solo, if you want to be great at accompaining it needs to be the other way around!

I just completed this today.
Learned the 2nd of 7 harmonic minor scale patterns and memorizing, then improvising over several E minor metal/ballad backing tracks.

Normal chromatic stuff , fret 1234/2345 all strings all frets etc, on 86 bpm, 4 notes per beat = 16th notes

Presto vivace 2 intro "runs" at 70 bpm (16th notes)

1324 (Is HARD!, 70 BPM 16th notes.)

that's for today.
I also learned the first themes, from Timmons Carpe Diem.
As Warmup I play that part from Carpe Diem, Electric Gypsy and I play along to Paying Dues by Richie Kotzen and some other stuff if Im not warm yet.

It is good to change this schedules from time to time, and to track your progress.

I've added something to my routine. Learning 3 new chords every day (all over the fretboard)

Using Mickey Bakers complete jazz course book with all kinds of chords and exercises with those cords.

Robben Ford also used this books and he recommends it!

Here's a few chromatic chord switching exercises. (I'm aware of my grammar mistakes, just to let you know:P)

With Major, Major 7, Major 6, Minor 7 and Minor 6 chords.

Ps(mixing quality is not anywhere near good.)

Seems like a good plan. That wouldn't work for me, I would "loose" myself with one exercise and "wake up" after an hour, instead of 10 mins biggrin.gif

I agree with Pedja, chords are crucial, you HAVE to rehearse them.

For me normally not too, but I seem motivated due to the thought that I might come closer to Robbens impeccable rythm playing by doing this, AND I find learning new chords/voicings/sounds really fun!
