ive just picked up a guitar and wanted to know some exercises to improve picking speed, technique or anything really.

just anything that i can spend 10-15 mins doing each day before i play to warm up and get better.

i already play bass to a reasonable standard so hand strength isnt an issue, just wondered if anything else can help me.

John Petrucci Guitar Discipline Book (or DVD, or both).

Also, sure to practice with a metronome. I like to use this (http://www.metronomeonline.com/ ).
