Ok, so a couple of days ago i was practicing alternate picking and was playing some runs up and down the fretboard. Than i decided to do something i could use for GMC, and here is the idea:

I created an exercise which will help you work on alternate picking runs both ascending and descending for a certain major scale (major scale for start) through all the 7 boxes you can find on the fretboard. Later we'll do same for minor boxes. The great progress i noticed when playing it is total relaxation.

I must say it is great for your AP workout and i really enjoy playing it, so what do you think about it? If you need something like this - i will make it into a lesson!

Anxiously awaiting!

When you are done this version, could you morph it into a pentatonic style as well, or tell us how this can be applied to other scales?

Thanks Pavel.
