Here's my fave:
Code:
--------------------------------5-7-- --------------------------5-7-------- --------------------5-7-------------- --------------5-7-------------------- --------5-7-------------------------- --5-7--------------------------------

Do this also using slides.

Here's another to really stretch:
Code:
--------1--3------------ -1--3------------------- ------------------------- ------------------------- ------------------------- -------------------------

over and over again for 1 min

this is my little five note run exercise, I have it on the A natural minor but you can move it onto different scales and stuff to make it harder

ok, I just realized the exercize is too big for tab so Ill have to explain it, you start at the tweath fret on the low E play up five notes of the scale and play down four then from were you are play up five and down four, then from were you are up five and down four, to give you an Idea of it, the first two runns would look like this

Code:
---------12-14-12----------12-14-15-14-12 12-13-15--------15-13-13-15---------------15


this sounds really shreddy and if you break the runs up they sound really good thrown into a solo

heres another run, this ones chromatic and kinda slayerish sounding

Code:
14-15-14-13-14-13-12-13-12---12 --------------------------15-----15


and keep moving that down two strings, starting from the high E and band if you feel the need you can move down a fret and play it all backwards, if you keep moving down its a real test of stamina

oh yeah, I I like to practice the main riff from master of puppets by mettallica which goes like this

A----2----3-----4-----3-----2
E0-1--0-1--0-1--0-1--0-1

the main riff to the anti-christ by slayer

d---4-2-------4-2-------2---------4-2-------4-2-------4-----
a-------4-3-------4-3---0-------------4-3-------4-3---2-----
e-2----------2---------0---------2----------2---------0--------

and the rythm to disposable heroes by metallica which you really have to lissten to to get down properly

Basically, if you can do some fingering, no particular notes at the bottom

Code:
------3----------------- ---------2-------1----- ---1----------2-------- -2---------4-----------


you learn it there, then slide it up and you'll be able to do it. Less stretching - easy

one i've been doing lately to build my pinky strength is

Code:
--------------------------------5-7- --------------------------5-7-------- --------------------5-7-------------- --------------5-7-------------------- --------5-7-------------------------- --5-7--------------------------------


but with just the middle and pinky finger, very exhausting, but i've noticed an improvement and i've only been doing it for about a week.

for instance my guitar teacher showed a little pull off riff using the g minor pentatonic (with a few grace notes)

Code:
--6p5p3--------------3----------------- --------6p5p3------3--------------------- ----------------5(^7)---------------------- ----------------------------------- ----------------------------------- -----------------------------------


or something like that, but i can do it alot faster now though

also when i do the exercise, i start on the 1/3 frets and going down the strings then back up, then moving up one freat all the way down the neck, then doing it backwards on the way back down the neck. i think it's important to go backwards to develop fluidity.

Here's a chord I saw the guy from dream theater talk about. It really helps your hand stretch out.


e---17
B---15
G---12
D---14
A---12
E--- x

Once you get that try it in the 11th position, then the 10th position and so on.

I usually do this lick from the solo from Fade To Black:
Code:
----------7----------------------------------- -------------10-7---------------------------- ----9--^------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------

I also do some basic chromatic stuff that is already posted and doodle around with some stuff I already know.


Then I go onto whatever I am praticing that day.

I usually do some pretty basic warmups. I use the songs that I play for the practice and speed building.

I mainly just do stuff like this:

Code:
e|-1-2-3-4---------------- B|-1-2-3-4---------------- G|-1-2-3-4---------------- D|-1-2-3-4---------------- A|-1-2-3-4---------------- E|-1-2-3-4----------------


Then I might do that over again, but then I will make my way up the neck until I reach the 12th fret then I will go back down the neck backwards. Works really well in my opinion.

I also do some stuff to help me with Hammer-Ons and Pull-Offs like this one:

Code:
e|-------------------------------------------------------5----5h7---- B|--------------------------------------------5----5h7--------------- D|---------------------------------5----5h7-------------------------- G|----------------------5----5h7------------------------------------- A|-----------5----5h7------------------------------------------------ E|------5h7----------------------------------------------------------


I'll play that using Hammer-Ons then I will go backwards, but instead of using Hammer-Ons I will use Pull-Offs. Kinda confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it you can begin to do it very quickly.

Just a couple I use.
