I was wondering what scales you guys would reccommend I practice to get my finger work better? I'm decent at soloing now, but can't do it for more than a few seconds without getting my fingers all tangled up. I've been told that my playing style is like Godsmack combined with Alice in Chains only heavier with some Lamb of God, Zakk Wylde, Eddie Vanh Halen, and Rob Zombie thrown in. Also, what scales are good for getting sweep picking down?

Kill me. Please.


I wouldn't advise scales for sweeping really. Arpeggios work very well. I'm pretty sure in AT there are a bunch of shapes shown.

Well that's why I'm asking what is reccommended for sweeping. I didn't know scales weren't good for it. Now I do.

The more you know.....

Don't practice scales, practice solos or construct exercises from scales but don't just play straight scales.

If you can only play lead for a few seconds then forget sweeping for the time being, you're not ready for it.

well where shall we begin?
fist off a particular scale will not get you playing faster or get you fingers working better. Thats what practicing is for. The more you practice technique the easier it will be play play faster and with more endurance. There is no magic scale that makes you better. Motivated practice accomplishes that. And if you are planning on sweeping entire scales, then if you do, my hats off to you. Sweeping picking is a technique most commonly associated with arpeggios not scales. Because arpeggios have like one note per string (most times) they are more suited for a sweeping technique rather than a three note per string scale. For that i would recommend more legato and economy picking approach. So my advise is to practice more to get you fingers moving like you want them to and to learn some arpeggios to sweep with.
good luck and god speed
