This simple alternate picking exercise employs a C major scale starting with the note G on the sixth string of the guitar that ascends to the C note on the 1st string of the guitar. This scale then descends back to the G note on the 6th guitar string.
You can think of this scale as G mixolydian or C major starting on the note of G. But, in this lesson it is just a convenient way to cross all 6 strings of the guitar to gain fluency.
Another useful way to create forward movement is to accent the 5th note of each 6 note [or 2 triplets] groupings.
Lastly, we can double the scale and create a longer line.

In this video I talk about musical visualisation and internalisation and how it helps me. The internalisation of music helps with the external performance of music by directing the music out from inside ourselves so that we can articulate it through the external instrument we are playing.
In terms of solo performance this is an invaluable concept.
Today is a live stream podcast and video log only discussing the immortal question: “Does musical talent account for anything or does hard work, obsession clear vision and a demanding ambition pave the way to musical success”?
