Tony is going to talk about a very effective guitar speed building exercise, one that he has been using for years and as you will see by watching the video below, it works. This exercise will build speed, agility and strength while familiarizing you with the entire fretboard of your guitar. It also gives you practice with your picking. It is just a great all around exercise that every guitarist should incorporate into their practice routine, no matter what your skill level is. Its a fairly simple chromatic exercise. Watch the video below to learn exactly how its done. Remember to go very slow in the beginning until you get this exercise under your fingers.
Another thing Tony recommends you do while performing this exercise is to sing the notes. Tony says this helps you hear the notes better and will help fine tune that musical ear of yours.
