Back from the weekend

Hey Everyone,

The weekend is over, and I'm back with another exercise. We had a good band practise on Saturday going over the songs we havn't played for a while and learning the new songs for the week.

We've got three gigs coming up which should be good.

Ok, here's the exercise for today. It's a warmup that I use nearly everytime I'm going to play, it gives the picking hand a good warm up. I use alternate picking starting on a downstroke.

Usually when I just loop this pattern slowly getting faster.

  1. In the 2nd measure, isn't it a bit awkward to use the 4th finger to play the 2nd, 3rd & 4th beats?
