Justin Jones I've got a metronome set to 60 bpm, which is a perfect speed (for me at least) and I've been going up and down this and the general major scale in Lesson 5 that we learned. It's surprisingly tougher than you think. Playing in rhythm and making the notes sound smooth and not disjointed at a with a beat is different animal.

Justin Jones I use ProMetronome for the Metronome on my iPhone, very easy to set the beat. You can also set a beat by tapping a button. I use PitchLab for tuning. I think I paid 3 bucks for it, it has literally every turning for the guitar that you can imagine pretty nifty little app. Again, I have an iPhone not sure if Android has them. Good luck from Texas, yall.

Loïc PEREZ Don't give up and keep working with a metronome even if it seems hard man. It is a very great start to learn how to pick notes correctly and to build up a clean shred. Start slow (it's not a shame !) and try to get a bit faster when you feel comfortable with the pace. We've all been through this! If you don't do it at the very beginning, it becomes harder and harder to get. Good luck man !

Mateo A. What I did to learn this scale was playing it over and over again, while saying out loud both Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Ti Do and C D E F G A B C. I did it first with the one I'm most comfortable with, then the one I rarely use. After that, I moved down an octave and played the 12th fret when it first was open strings. Quite time consuming but it paid off 🙂
