Remember the overall goals of this tutorial on building speed using the major scale.

  • It helps in getting a lot of practice at alternate picking and fast scale fretting motions.
  • It helps in visualizing and memorizing the scale pattern & hand positions.

    Finally I make a few points about these lessons being scale exercises and not actual solo melodies! They can be used as aprt of a solo, or in service of a melody, but alone they are just the raw skills, tools and materials out of which you can build better technique and ultimately a good melodic solo!

    Happy playing!

    This tutorial is one in a series on building and using speed (very fast playing).
