One thing that often gets overlooked is the position and angle of our picking hand when playing something that moves across several strings.
Here's is an unorthodox method to memorizing scales using the common three-note-per-string shapes we often employ during runs.
One thing that gets in the way of developing hand synchronization—without us even realizing it—is bad timing, especially in terms ofthe fretting hand.
