Improve Accuracy and Speed Part 1
I find these scales both fun and helpful in improving your speed and accuracy. Try these out: *This is based off of a similar lesson an old guitar teacher of mine showed me years ago. I incorporated it into a useful exercise to help build strength in each figure. EX 1
e|-0-1-3-----------------------------|------------------------------3-1-0-|
B|-------0-1-3-----------------------|------------------------3-1-0-------|
G|-------------0-2-3-----------------|------------------3-2-0-------------|
D|------------------0-2-3------------|------------3-2-0-------------------|
A|------------------------0-2-4------|------4-2-0-------------------------|
E|-----------------------------0-2-4-|-4-2-0------------------------------|
EX 2 *This one is one of my favorites! Normally I suggest starting at the fifth frets but after you get a little more comfortable with this exercise start at the 1st fret and work up the neck to add some variety.
e|-------------------5-8-|-8-5-----------------|
B|---------------5-8-----|----8-5--------------|
G|------------5-7--------|-------7-5-----------|
D|---------5-7-----------|----------7-5--------|
