Diatonic Exercise With George Salas

By July 07, 2015

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.
