Try "Sweet Child O' Mine" intro
Start slow then get faster - And alternate pick
What I do to warm up
Good IMO

Scales? Practice in front of the tv or something, if you do that for half an hour every day (coupled of course with playing regularly too), you'll improve quickly without really making an effort.

I highly recommend John Petrucci's Rock Discipline. I'm sure you can find excerpts on the net and videos on YouTube.

he has some great excersizes/warm-ups that address the snags you run into with alternate picking when trying to do more then just play scales or simple solos. Definitely check it out.

Oh and a personal exercise of mine is to play arpeggios, the more extended the better, with strict alternate picking. It's a great warm-up for both hands. Hope it helps!

A good one i think is i think a "chromatic scale" but like meh idk if thats even right ill tab it quickly

1-----------------------------------------------------6-7-8-9-
2------------------------------------------5-6-7-8---------
3--------------------------------4-5-6-7------------
4----------------------3-4-5-6-------------------------
5------------2-3-4-5--------------------------------
6--1-2-3-4---------------------------------------------

then work back up in a diagonal so you end up near the 12th fret then work backwards (very important but can be fairly tricky)

No, don't practice in front of the tv. If you spend 15 minutes practicing alone and concentrated, you will probably improve more then 30 minutes in front of the tv

Hey, I thinks this one is more on economy picking and string skipping... But it'll probably work

That's not a chromatic scale, it's just an exercise.
