How to Practice Scales
Fine-tune your practice methods to hear scales the right way, play faster, and make more music.
What does "know your scales" or "practice your scales" mean and how can I do it myself?
Whenever you ask people how to practice scales, they always answer "with a metronome."
OK, does that mean you just go up the scale, then down the scale, then up again, rinse and repeat for half an hour? Is this how you are supposed to practice a scale?
In this free mini course, you'll learn the best way to start practicing scales on guitar. This is the method I teach to all of my private students, and it will help you hear scales the right way as you're practicing.
On top of that, you'll learn how to segment a scale into digestible chunks and how to apply true alternate picking for faster lead playing.
