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 also combine 16th note clusters
  • 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
  • Chromatic exercise 51-58 start with rests, essential practise if you want to become really quick
  • Sweeping exercise 59-66 will improve your speed when sweeping. Just like exercise 51-58, we start these on displaced 16th notes.

To get the most out of these exercises you need consistency so little and often is key. 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. Pick a new exercise at random, spend a maximum of five minutes with it.

You don’t have to break speed records every time you practise, instead, work on accuracy and keep up the consistency of practising these.
