I have been playing the C Major Scale for a few hours now, and am getting faster at it.

But how long will it take me to get this scale down like most of those metal guitarists out there today?

I am just curious haha.

It really depends on what scale, where you're playing it, and what degree you're playing up/down to/from.

Edit: And how fast, also.

That would be an arpeggio.

just because it's in a sweeping shape doesn't mean it's an arpeggio, you can sweep scales too.

There is 7 notes in the C major scale. 8 if you count the octave.

This is my favorite sweep arpeggio EVER. Learn it! It sounds awesome.

Yeah, if you wanna hear it, it's from "One Day You Will Cry" by CoB.

To answer your question, nobody knows.

YOUR playing is dependant on how much you practice, how good your coordination is, how much you understand the motions, a whole slew of variables.

Basicly, it's up to you how long it takes. Don't worry about speed, speed is a by-product of practice and percision. It'll come naturally, but how soon all depends on you.
