These exercises employ the A Harmonic Minor Scale. I use alternate picking guitar technique starting on a downstroke.
Exercise 1: Simple descending and ascending 2 finger harmonic minor scale. “Even” alternate picking pattern
Exercise 2: Wide interval 3 finger to the simple 2 finger descending Harmonic Minor Scale
Exercise 3: Moving from a 3 finger piece of scale mid strings out to the first string with a simple 2 finger scale approach. Mixing 2 and 3 finger alternate picking.
Harmonic Minor Scale PART 2: JOHN MCLAUGHLIN GUITAR TECHNIQUE:
Exercise 4: John Mclaughlin scale guitar fingering technique. This method again employs strict alternate picking starting on a down stroke.
