Watch the Scales: Level 2 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym: Scales Workouts

In this second Level 2 Scales Workout you're moving up to the next pair of pentatonic fingerings: #3 and #4. All the same rules and approaches apply: Start with a downstroke keeping you on the outsides of the strings when picking from one adjacent string to another, keep steady time when playing along with me and/or your metronome and try to keep the other strings quiet with the technique discussed in the Overview video.

As you get more comfortable with these workouts, try starting them on an upstroke, which will reverse the outside/inside pivot combination forcing you to play on the insides when starting the descending pattern and then the outsides when ascending.
