Well, it's summer again, and it so happens that my bandmates travel schedules conflict, so all four of us are never in the same state at once, and won't be for the next month :) Well, since I haven't had anyone to jam with lately, I've been doing some practice at home, on my technique. I've been practicing with a metronome, doing scale sequences and that little 1-2-3-4 quasi-chromatic exercise along with multiple permutations, and I play pretty cleanly at 100 bps sixteenths on almost every mode and a few sweeps, but this is getting boring!!!
Does anyone know of any fun exercises, or just anything better than going up and down scales? I guess I'm looking for the Tae-Bo of guitar instead of this old weight lifting routine I'm doing...
I'm not looking to shred 16ths at 150+, I just want to brush up... I noticed that nothing but jamming has gotten my playing a bit sloppy.
