Guitarist warm up

GUITARIST WARM UP by STEVE MORSE

Steve Morse is definitely one of the best players in the planet. When asked what is the most important thing about playing guitar? Answered: “Accuracy”. Being more accurate obviously you save yourself time and become more efficient musician, being way more productive in the studio and playing better live gigs.

Today I’d like to bring I think very important aspect and quite often missing element of playing guitar: warm up. Before recording in the studio or playing live, I like to spend at least 1-2hrs of exercises covering running through few scales (different positions, whole fretboard), arpeggios, legato, stretch but also picking exercises. I think bringing Mr. Steve Morse again to the subject of picking is very appropriate as he is a master of this technique, especially alternate picking and string skipping. I highly recommend to watch following Steve Morse clinic.
