One of the most important parts of your practice schedule is the warm up. This not only prepares you technically and physically but also helps you to retain scalic or theoretical knowledge you have learnt so you can use it in solos later on. Running scales up and down can be boring through. So here I’ve used all five positions of the minor pentatonic scale in the CAGED system and I have used legato techniques and string skipping to move between them. And to finish it off I’m displacing the beat by a semi quaver. This kind of approach is not only useful in warm ups but also in solos. Have a go at one of all of the ideas in this video!
