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--------------------------------------------------|
E|--5--7--8-----------------------------------------------------------|
REMEMBER THAT MAJOR SCALE IS RELATED TO MINOR SCALE AND
MINOR SCALE IS RELATED TO MAJOR SCALE

THESE ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF FINGER EXERCISE BASE ON C MAJOR SCALE
YOU CAN PLAY THIS WITH SOMEOTHER SCALE YOU WANT,
USE THE ASCENDING AND DESCENDING FORMAT.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF FINGER EXERCISE BASE ON C MAJOR/Am MINOR SCALE
USING ASCENDING AND DESCENDING FORMAT

THESE ARE JUST EXAMPLE AND EXERCISES BASE ON SCALE,
MOVE IT IN EVERY POSITION AND DIFFERENT SCALE,
START SLOW UP TO THE HIGHEST TEMPO THAT YOU CAN.
HOPE YOU LIKE IT GOODLUCK?
nice, but could you have not used caps, it makes it pretty hard to read.

ya, it was pretty good though
When u said that the Cmaj scale is related to the Am scale, does that mean that they both are the same scales???

FreakyStyley
also, write the article in Courier New it will help with the tabs to be neat, and i agree with lessthanthree^ on the caps lock thing

but good article
C Maj. and A minor scale have the same notes so do E min. and G maj. The 6th degree of a Major scale played with the notes of that scale is a minor scale
C maj:C,D,E,F,G,A,B
a min:A,B,C,D,E,F,G,
This needs too much work right now, sort out the caps lock thing and repost.
