Practice With Cael: Warm Up Routine II

Join me in playing through the 24 different permutations of the classic 1-2-3-4 fingering.

Ultimate Guitar
Welcome to the Chromagym! A bit of a finger work out that gets your fingers moving and gets your finger coordination and independence going.

This work out takes about 25 minutes to complete if played without mistakes. :) 

This is based around the classic 1-2-3-4 permutations of which there are 24:
1234 1243 1324 1342 1423 1432

2134 2143 2314 2341 2413 2431

3124 3142 3214 3241 3412 3421

4123 4132 4213 4231 4312 4321
We'll be playing through each permutation starting from the 9th position and moving down to the 1st position. So hop on and play with me through this workout.

Here is the drum beat I use in case you want to practice through these without me.

    weird how i never thought about doing all the permutations with the 1234 pattern. nice lesson
    So this is a comprehensive half hour warmup? I mean I play between 4 and 6 hours a day and this just takes up a huge chunk of that time. Does it really help? How long did it take you to get the full warmup down to memory?
