Everyone loves a perfectly placed fill. That’s why today we’ll be going over scalar exercises that will help us create those tasty licks while beefing up our technique.
In essence, we’re practicing a scale. Typically when you play a scale, you go from root to root in order. But we’re going to break it down and move in thirds instead! I will show you four variations on how you can do that, all making great material for runs and fills.
You can make practicing any scale more effective that way. For example, I’ll show you how to do this with the altered scale as well. Follow along with our handy PDF, and be sure to turn on that metronome!
Today’s tip: try this idea on anything you practice to help you move over the entire fretboard.
