Here's a little practice thing I made up that might help people get faster with their playing, or simply warm up. It's played exactly how it's showed -- just start back at the beginning right after you end. Alternate back and forth between down and up strokes for picking (unless you want to try all down strokes, but that might slow it down a bit). Right now, my fastest speed is 210 BPMs. After that, I end up screwing up the third time around or so.

|-5-7-5------------------2-----------
|-------6-5-3-5-3-0-2-3----3-2-1-0--

I like to palm mute the whole thing, but it doesn't really matter.

That's a weak alternative picking technique. Make or find an exercise that utilizes more strings, more notes, and less notes concentrated on one string.

I know it's pretty simple, but I meant it to be more for beginners. One of the only guys I ever get to play around on guitar with really sucks, so I try to make stuff for him to get better with. Speed is the only thing that it would really be good for with more intermediate guitarists.

After hearing what you posted in the "post your riffs" thread.. it's pretty hard to believe you can actually play that.. but whatever..

EDIT: .. How FAST can you play it.. ??

I can play that... I began playing when i was in the 8th grade. I have graduated from highschool now. I took lessons for about three months, but after that I have been pretty much self taught.

And about the tabs... I find it boring when you have maybe 10 16th notes played open on the 6th (or 7th) string, with almost no changes, or dificulty. I like things to be mixed up, and constantly moving.

Again, I can play that... took me ages to type it tho; I am not too good with this whole tabbing thing

oh, and to your edit.. I have no clue how fast. I know its not the brightest thing, but I have never used a metronome.

**Edited**

Here is the scale in PowerTab. That is fairly close to what it is supposed to sound like. I will probably record my self noodling around, and load it up to the forum... I usually play it as a warm up. Play it at 90 BPM

Im not quite sure which fingers i should use in the godless endeavor solo, which way do you find better?

1. Pattern
Code:
p m i p r i p i r p i m p |---------------10-13p10-----------------| |------------12-----------12-------------| |------10h13----------------13p10--------| |---12-----------------------------12----| |14-----------------------------------14-| |----------------------------------------|


2. Pattern
Code:
p r i p r i p i r p i r p |---------------10-13p10-----------------| |------------12-----------12-------------| |------10h13----------------13p10--------| |---12-----------------------------12----| |14-----------------------------------14-| |----------------------------------------|



Its just about the finger used at the 12 fret.
I find the first Pattern a bit easier to play, but the second one pretends to be easier playing at a higher speed.

I didn't realize how anal every one on here is about every thing. Add examples of what I'm saying. I didn't even think of that. But even if I did think of it...I dont know how to put like guitarpro files or tabs on here. So if some one could help me out with that it would be cool.

Umm...I guess I didn't really think about my super sweeps thread too much. Seeing that Rusty Cooley Video made it obvious that people and super sweep. And I guess now that I think of it...I can to. Not to Rusty's extent. But I still got it. I suppose there are a lot of guys who can do that. Yngwie could, Micheal Angelo Batio definitly could, As Could Jason Becker, when he was able to. Them and more.

I guess you really do have to think about these threads before you type anything.

volvox - i use the first pattern because my middle finger naturally falls on the 10th fret of the G string. if you move that shape down the neck its tough to use your ring finger so i always stick to the first pattern

Right, as some of you may know,
I'm a REAL scales, modes and chords freak.
Completely meshuggah (no reference to the band).
And my career has been successful.
Especially in the scales and modes department.

This is a compilation of the stuff I've started
threads on in the Theory Forum. And just some
scale-y stuff. If you want the original theory
and stuff I found out about them, visit the
original threads.

http://metaltabs.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29670
http://metaltabs.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29384
http://metaltabs.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29133

If you deploy an Advanced Search for threads started
by me in the Theory Forum, you may find some other stuff
of interest to you.


Firstly,
mode charts for the four common minor chords!

Natural Minor - (A B C D E F G)
A Aeolian (Natural Minor)
B Locrian (Half-Diminished)
C Ionian (Natural Major)
D Dorian
E Phrygian
F Lydian
G Mixolydian

Harmonic Minor - (A B C D E F G#)
A Harmonic Minor
B Locrian #6
C Harmonic Major
D Spanish Phrygian
E Phrygian Dominant (Double Harmonic Major)
F Lydian #2
G# Diminished

Pentatonic Minor - (A C D E G)
A Chinese (Pentatonic Minor)
C Mongolian (Pentatonic Major)
D Egyptian
E ???
G ???

Melodic Minor - (A B C D E F# G#)
A Jazz Minor (Melodic Minor)
B Dorian b2
C Lydian Augmented
D Lydian Dominant
E Hindu (Hindustani)
F# Locrian #2
G# Super Locrian (Altered Wholetone)

Sorry about those two last penta' modes.
They are two I have not as yet come across.

Here are the symmetrical scales.
Built around the symmetrical chords
(Augmented and Diminished), they have cool,
almost 'swirling' feels, and produce
patterns on the fretboard which make them
easy to learn and improvise in, especially
on seven-string guitars.

Eight Tone Symmetrical
AKA Octatonic (Half-Whole)
AKA Arabian a).
AKA Auxilliary Diminished Blues

Code:
[----------------------------------------6-7-9-10~~] [--------------------------------5-6-8-9-----------] [------------------------3-4-6-7-------------------] [----------------2-3-5-6---------------------------] [--------1-2-4-5-----------------------------------] [0-1-3-4-------------------------------------------]


A favourite of Karl Sanders from Nile.

Six Tone Symmetrical
(don't know any AKA's)

Code:
[------------------------------8--9~~] [------------------------9--10-------] [------------------9--10-------------] [------------10-11-------------------] [------11-12-------------------------] [12-13-------------------------------]


Then there are Japanese scales,
which are highly melodic and from
them can be drawn HUGE melodies.
They have what I call 'stacked' intervals.
I'll do the Japanese a). on seven strings.

Code:
[------------------------0-1-5~] [--------------------0-1-------] [------------------2-----------] [--------------2-3-------------] [--------0-2-3-----------------] [----0-1-----------------------] [0-1---------------------------]


Then there the Southern Far Eastern scales,
some Vietnamese and Malaysian, such as
Kumoi and Pelog. Sound right odd.

[FORGOTTEN-THEM,-SORRY!--------]

Then there's the Persian scale. DAMN odd.
Starts quite Arabic then goes off on a blues
tangent.
Odd shaping as well.

Code:
[----------------------------0-1-4-5~] [------------------------1-4---------] [------------------1-2-3-------------] [------------1-2-3-------------------] [------0-1-3-------------------------] [0-1-4-------------------------------]


Now, here's the daddy of oddness.
The Nonatonic scale, or Nine Tone scale.
Yes, NINE NOTES.

Code:
[------------------------------------0-2-3-4-6~] [----------------------------0-1-2-4-----------] [----------------------0-1-3-------------------] [----------------1-2-4-------------------------] [--------1-2-3-4-------------------------------] [0-2-3-4---------------------------------------]


Now, the Promethean scale. Having no common chord
in it, it sounds melodically amorphous. Puzzling
listening.

Code:
[------------] [------------] [------------] [----------0-] [------1-4---] [0-2-4-------]


Lydian Diminished!
A favourite of mine!
Has some nice, moody Diminished-style modes.

Code:
[----------------------------0-2-3-6~] [----------------------0-2-4---------] [------------------0-3---------------] [------------1-2-4-------------------] [------1-2-4-------------------------] [0-2-3-------------------------------]


Let me present to you a scale that I have
never seen ANYWHERE ELSE and thus named
after myself:

THE MACDONALDIAN SCALE!

Code:
[----------------------------0-2-3-5~] [----------------------1-2-4---------] [------------------0-2---------------] [------------1-2-4-------------------] [------0-3-4-------------------------] [0-2-3-------------------------------]


Has the most awesome modes.
Not named them as yet.
The mode starting on the 4th string
(3rd highest) starts like a pentatonic
(to be exact, the Egyptian penta' mode)
and vanishes into kind-of harmonic minor,
diminished-ness.

Hope it's all helpful.

As requested by John Mansley
