Unlocking the exercises from the fifth fret.

Hi!

This is more a question than a comment or suggestion. In fact I would appreciate an opinion from BTG members or BTG staff team:

I find the fingering exercises great. They already did a lot for me in the past 6 months. Lately, to vary a bit, I started doing all the exercises starting at fret 1 and change to fret 2 for second repetition and so on, until I reach fret 12 with the pinky ( acoustic guitar with no cutaway) and then back to fret 1. I find it more fun and it keeps the mind active.....but is it good?

I am open to any good advice or suggestion to get even more out of exercises.

Thanks,

YC

Hi!

Thanks for your answer. Yes I do that with the 7 notes patterns and with the Pentatonics. That is what gave me the idea of moving the finger strengthening exercises.

However, if I may ask, could you explain your suggestion of playing them in boxes? It looks like something new to me and I am interested!

I am sorry I call them boxes Jonathan calls them circles. Anyways mixing them up as you go up and down the neck to give you a variety and it so it gives a feel for what sounds good and what doesn't. It will help you improvise and come up with your own sound. Look at the "The Easiest Way To Improvise".
