Well, you should try the penatonic scales, or any other easy scale, to work your way up
#8
I do a picking exercise up and down each string along the entire length of the neck, then I usually go into a few scales.

I like to start with Every Rose has its thorn. Get my chords going and wail on those relatively simple solos. Then I move on to a song that is a bit faster, maybe like Back in Black or something. I'll occasionally start with scales if I'm working on getting my finger speed up, but usually Im just trying to relax.

I play warmups like you're doing, then i put my guitar down and get something to eat. Then pick my guitar back up. I usually repeat this process until i have to use the bathroom, in which case i either sit or stand. But i dont really do any playing....thats for people who know what they are doing. I learn through osmosis; slepping on the guitar.

That made me laugh.

I do the warmups myself. Always remember, that exercise goes to the limit of your metronome.

Then it depends on what I want to work on.

Sequencing?
Tapping?
New licks from other artists?

Or, my chugging speed.

Like, you know, \m/ HEAVY METAL \m/

Or, a train. Samething. they both chug.

I usually play Black Dog or Under the Bridge first - helps to warm up my fingers.

On bass I start off with the slap version of Master of Puppets - another good finger warm up.

Something fun to do with chords and notes usually; Highway to Hell by AC/DC get me all chorded up, and Sweet Child O' Mine covers the finger warm-ups. Or sometimes the intro to Stairway to Heaven to warm up my picking hand.

Well, I have a book of stuff to help me gain skill (beginner edition, due to my current skill level), which I use to play whichever excersizes that I am working on at the time, and then whatever else I can find that I think is appropriate for that practice session.

Then, I like to play every chord I know until every single note is coming out clearly.
I then play the only scale I know (minor pentatonic, i.e. "Blues Scale"), but I use it in a excersize which covers everything to the 13th fret, and back.

Next , I play the song (or songs) that I am learning or working to improve.
Then, I play whichever song I feel like playing (I know about 30 assorted intros, segments, chorus, and verses.)for fun.

Finally (sp?), to close off my epic session of practice, I improvise, or try to find cool noises, and make up my own solos.

All in all, I don't usually get to do all the things listed here (I blame schools), but when I get a day off, I practice my head off!

Lately, it's been some Strapping Young Lad and Vader

But, usually, I'm playing Opeth, Nile, Death, and Kreator.

But, for like actually practicing stuff?

Errr....

I practice the harmonic minor scales all the time, and plenty of chromatics, I also practice major and minor pentatonics.

Usually a very short classical riff, followed by Metallica's Fade to Black, in which case I've got my chords, fingerpicking and soloing warmed up

For a person who only knows one scale you sure have a lot of gear o.0
I like rap, feel free to use that as an argument against me.

i start off with a right and left hand finger exercise to loosen em up its an awesome one i saw on a petrucci video and then i will mess around with scales and improv.
#37
Usually I stretch out my fingers because, when you practice, you're exercising your muscles, just like working out, and if you don't stretch before hand you can tear up your muscles. Then I do patterns, and work my pinky alot. Next, it all depends on what you play.
Ibanez...and Tama drums...are the coolest.
#38
I don't ever really pick up the guitar specifically to practice some exercise. I usually only pick up the guitar when I'm feeling like working on some song, origonal or cover....last couple of days it's been Cemetery Gates by Pantera, a couple of simple emo covers, or some origionals...
