Don't do someone elses guitar warmup's dude. Just take ideas and create something to fit your own style. If you check out his site he basically just tries to take simple things like the Pentatonic scale and bring them to the next level. It usually sounds something like, "So all you have to do is experiment with different inversions and string skipping that isn't common in most licks. Practice this and after about five hours or so, you really notice the difference in you playing,". Or you have people like John Petrucci who will categorize all the different techniques he uses and split them up accordingly based on how long he has to practice. Or you have people like me who only learn new things when they're in music classes or just driving down the road brainstorming. But when I practice I go through the scales, and chords I use a lot, and just jam 'til I drop dead.
Ain't nothin' but a Gear thang, baby!
