Hey guys! I hope you enjoy this exercise.

I use this one to practice alternate picking and speed while staying in a key.

Diatonic Exercise 1

  • This exercise is in the key of C major and is demonstrated both ascending and descending.
  • Make sure that your shifts are clean and precise to create a smooth flow.
  • Try these patterns in different keys throughout the neck.
  • Increase speed on the metronome once to build speed.
  • This is best suited for alternate picking and not economy picking.

    Great exercises help my middle-aged fingers stretch and feels good and even sounds great. Looked at your website any chance of getting a .gpx (guitarpro) file of this exercise?

    Hey man, thank you for the comment... I may start making them guitar pro files too since you suggested it. I believe that I can even post the file on here in the "tabs" section.
