When I warm up/practice, I play scales of 5, 6, 7, & 8 tones. What different rythems are good for practicing 5, 6, & 8 tone scales? Thanks for any advice.
rythms as in time signatures?, or off beats?, or what?
i would probably say pentatonics (5 tones) will work with almost any signature as u they are very versatile, as for 8 tone scales there are many possibilities try runnig up adn down them doing 3rds, 6ths slowly triplet ascending (i think there is a proper name for it i can't remember though) basically you play up 3 tones bak to the first note then ascend up another 3 tones in a pattern such as- 1,2,3,1,2,3,4,2,3,4,5,3 e.t.c

sorry i am rubbish at exaplaining that sort of thing

No.. you see when one person stays on UG for to long, then they tend to lose there minds to the Pit monkeys. And well..... just watch for yourself

Umm - Whatever fits. I usually just practice scales with quarter notes or eight notes.

and mong, what on earth are you talking about? I sort of think you are trying to get at excersizes to use with scales - coils and such - but clarification would help us all.
