10 Minute Vacation Workout For Guitar

In this lesson I am going to give you a workout ideal for vacations business trips or just when you are short on time but don’t want your playing to suffer. The exercises given will cover various finger movements, string skipping, chords, scales, alternate picking, and chromatics.

Each drill is to be played for no more and no less than two minutes. There are five drills so this lesson will take you exactly ten minutes. This type of routine is ideal for when you go on trips and do not have a lot of time to devote to your studies.

Use a metronome and go slow and remember, no more and no less than 10 minutes.
