Well, here's the second installment of the warm up exercises.
This part is divided into 3 sections: Finger Gymnastic #2, Major Scale Pos. 2, Alternate Picking Exercise #1
Finger Gymnastic #2
The fingering on the first gymnastic was 1-2-3-4 ascending, and 4-3-2-1 descending. The fingering for this one is 1-3-2-4 ascending and 4-2-3-1 descending.
Please remember: observe the picking strokes, accent the first note in each sequence, and start slow -- accuracy then speed!
Major Scale Pos.2
This is the second position of the major scale. Yes, the left hand notes are fretted in the same place! Hower, the fingering is different. Why is this? This is because you should be able to play any scale from any chord you are holding. When you memorize all 8 scale postions, you can rip into scales not matter what chord you are playing.
And if you only play power chords? It's still a good thing to learn, so stop being lazy!
