Hi and welcome in my next lesson. Excuse me for my bad English, it's just not my native language. You may think that you don't have to warm up before learn new stuff or play a gig. But you have. So in this lesson i'm gonna give you a few exaple to help you warm up. This will be an epic warm up exercise with every possible variation of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th fret. (24 variation) Use your 1st finger for the 1st fret, 2nd for the 2nd 3rd for the 3rd and 4th for the 4ht fret. Don't cheat on these "licks" because it's only wrong for you.

And there you have it. 24 "licks" for warm up. Yes it is boring, but if you wan to strengthen you fingers this will help. Try this in different positions on the neck and if you can, use a metronome. It will help you to have a better sense of rhythm. Mezmerus.
