Hey TBrs, I'm an advanced beginner who's been playing on-and-off for a few decades. I play mainly rock and blues, and jam weekly with a 4-piece band. I've been working on really learning the fingerboard of late and have found this exercise really helpful: Moving through the circle of 4ths (or 5ths) playing straight 8ths on each string (against a drum machine) and saying the note names as I play them. So if I start on F, I play the F on the E string, then on the A string and so forth playing all the Fs in the first 12 frets -- and then I go backwards. Although this is basic, it's really been helping my fretboard knowledge and time. I think I'm going to try Scott's suggestion here to say the note names as I play the scales and then learn the scales on a single string. Do you have an exercise that has really turbo-charged your playing? If so please share! Thanks!
