Trying to progress with my scale pattern memorisation and alt picking and speed etc. As many guitarist, I'm guess the G to B and B to G string is a stumbling point so I started focusing on that.

Whilst I can appreciate there is no right or wrong way, which have you found to be the approach that gives the most benefits when it comes to speed?

Sorry for the late reply, I missed this post altogether. If you need specific feedback just pop me a PM with a link to a post so I'm sure to see it. My bad though for not noticing it before now. sad.gif But here we go!

I like these patterns/shapes quite a bit. I do this type of thing (I usually would call it moving in "Fours" (four notes at a time before returning to the primary scale sequence pattern, threes work too). The fingering really does come down to what your fingers like doing best at some point. And what you think sounds better. In general, I try to play scales using three notes per string if at all possible just in general since it makes running a scale feel smoother IMHO. But outside of that, I"d say let your fingers tell you what they like, and if possible try to be able to get comfy with a variety of fingerings/slides as you never know when it will come in handy in a solo.

Any chance you can shoot a quick vid/web cam/etc. of you playing these so I can see your hands running through patterns? It's always good to be able to see/hear what's going on.
