Hi and welcome in my next lesson. Excuse me for my bad English, it's just not my native language. You may think that you don't have to warm up before learn new stuff or play a gig. But you have. So in this lesson i'm gonna give you a few exaple to help you warm up. This will be an epic warm up exercise with every possible variation of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th fret. (24 variation) Use your 1st finger for the 1st fret, 2nd for the 2nd 3rd for the 3rd and 4th for the 4ht fret. Don't cheat on these "licks" because it's only wrong for you.

And there you have it. 24 "licks" for warm up. Yes it is boring, but if you wan to strengthen you fingers this will help. Try this in different positions on the neck and if you can, use a metronome. It will help you to have a better sense of rhythm. Mezmerus.

    I wouldnt call these licks, id call em repetative, boring jumbles of notes.
    JL_Shredder
    Very nice. My first lesson has a few exercises you might like as well. I'm definitely going to start using these. Thanks

    Man, it looks easy to do but when you start the exercise it is not so easy. Good job.
    McMullen20
    Am I the only one who is disappointed with this? I'm gonna make up some real licks for you guys. You deserve better than some shitty chromatic scale with no tune or melody that you could have made up yourself.

    I must say you think its easy to play but when you go through all of them your brain starts to get confused. But good warm up exercise.

    Don't forget to go up the neck so you cover the entire fretboard...in case there is someone doesn't get that it goes likes this Instead of 1234 just go 2345 then 3456...so on and so forth until you've played as much of the neck as you can handle so that way you can memorize the sounds for when you start soloing
    Mr.Santos

    14xjake
    nice exercise! I've never really known what to play to warm so i never warmed up properly and i would end up hurting my wrist. these will definitely help!
    strayleper
    just for bored warm ups i'll prolly practice #21 and #24, the hardest ones for me.. i haven't made up my mind because this lesson is so painfully obvious to figure out for anyone even if you don't play guitar
