Play something easy, move my hands around, stretch my fingers.

There's a really good guide on here somewhere.

Hang on.

Here it is.
The second is the one I was talking about, but I'd check them all out.
You can call me Aaron.

Out on parole, any more instances of plum text and I get put back in...

i do many chromatic exercises at first to warm up then i do the same exercises to a metronome 2x as long. that takes me about 30-45. when i'm done i'm blazing.
Just a little 5 note up and done picking exercise as fast as I can. Works for me.

  • Agile AL-3XXX Custom Tobacco Sunburst w/ EMG 57/66
  • ESP LTD EC-1000T CTM Black w/ Seymour Duncan Blackouts
  • Jet City JCA100HDM w/ Avatar Contemporary 2x12 Cab
  • Seymour Duncan 805 Overdrive
  • Dunlop OG Crybaby Wah
  • MXR Smartgate
Slow and easy, is how I start. Usually with my accoustic to stretch my fingers on some painful (and awfully sounding) chords, and play some fingerpicking songs; Then on electric, as someone has already suggested, I run through some modified Rock Discipline runs, and some more little etude's I came up with, or found the internet. I usually tend to make sure that I cover about every technique a bit.

Don't underestimate your warm-up 'program'.

I play this:
with distortion. It helps my finger stretching and muting.

Vids, or it didn't happen.

Tabs, at least.
