I made up this exercise/lick for myself and students who were beginning alternate picking and speed building.
This lick uses the "A" minor/Aeolian scale (see diagram below).
As you can see it's pretty much the same idea over 3 octaves and only uses 2 three fingered shapes throughout the whole exercise. It's great for shredding across the fretboard and helps you guys avoid shredding in small boxes.
Enjoy the lick/exercise guys!
