I think the material is excellent. I’ve benefited so much. I’ve now begun to improvise with some confidence and have written songs that feel authentic. I can now develop musically in a broad and rich way. Your work has illuminated an exciting path forward.– Roger

In the master guitar course, we work our way through the final thirty-five chromatic and sweeping exercises.

When you feel comfortable playing an exercise at a reasonable tempo, compare it with chromatic exercise 2. When that exercise reaches 130-140 BPM, you can stop this madness!

The quickest way to achieve this is to practise all these different exercises. Together they will fine tune your accuracy and get your speed up to new heights.

  • Chromatic exercise 32-34 combine different 16th note clusters
  • Sweeping exercises 35-42 combine the same 16th note clusters but sweep them
  • Chromatic exercise 43-46 are the most difficult as they use complex rhythms
  • Sweeping exercise 47-50 use the same rhythms as exercises 43-46 but sweep them
  • Chromatic exercise 51-58 start with rests, essential practise if you want to become really quick
  • Sweeping exercise 59-66 are the same as exercise 51-58, now we sweep them

To get the most out of these exercises, don’t spend two hours playing these once a week – that will probably do more harm than good! Instead, you want to do this little and often.

You don’t have to break any speed records, work on accuracy and your speed will soon improve.
