Here are some great warm up exercises for you to do as part of your regular guitar practice. In this video he looks at some chromatic scale exercises up and down the neck, and then some exercises around the Am / C major scale.
One of the important things to take away from this video is the importance of using a metronome or something similar to help you keep time. This guy is playing at double the speed of the metronome – don’t be discouraged if you can’t play that quick!
I use the chromatic scale exercises to warm up sometimes. I do them slightly different to how this guy does them, but the important thing is to make sure you can do them cleanly – picking every note.
Gets your fingers warmed up and ready for practice. Also good for building up your technique. Visit www.deandimarzo.com for more lessons, music, and videos!
