Cool finger exercise

FINGER EXERCISE

THERE ARE LOTS OF WAYS TO EXERCISE YOUR FINGER AND TO REACH THE SPEED YOU
WANT LIKE CHROMATIC SCALE,BUT THIS WILL HELP YOU ALOT BECAUSE YOU ARE
STRENGHTENING YOUR FINGER AT THE SAME TIME DOING THE SCALE AS EXERCISE

CMJ SCALE 2 OCTAVE
e|--------------------------------------5--7--8-----------------------|
B|-----------------------------5--6--8--------------------------------|
G|-----------------------5--7-----------------------------------------|
D|--------------5--7--9-----------------------------------------------|
A|-----5--7--8--------------------------------------------------------|
E|--8-----------------------------------------------------------------|


CMJ SCALE RELATED TO Am SCALE: THE SIXTH NOTE OF CMJ SCALE IS THE
A NOTE,SO YOU CAN PLAY THE SCALE USING A AS A ROOT NOTE,
IF YOU PLAY THE A NOTE AS A ROOT THEN YOU ARE NOW PLAYING
THE Am SCALE BASE ON CMJ SCALE.

EXAMPLE: THIS IS AN Am SCALE 2 OCTAVE, IT IS SIMILAR TO CMJ SCALE
BUT DIFFERENT ROOT NOTE, IT STARTS IN THE FIFTH FRET,
E STRING OR THE A NOTE
e|--------------------------------------------5-----------------------|
B|-----------------------------------5--6--8--------------------------|
G|-----------------------------5--7-----------------------------------|
D|--------------------5--7--9-----------------------------------------|
A|-----------5--7--8--------------------------------------------------|

MINOR SCALE IS RELATED TO MAJOR SCALE

This needs too much work right now, sort out the caps lock thing and repost.

EDIT - Oh, you're dead.
