|The Minor Scale is a music scale with 7 distinct notes to the octave. |
Play each scale mode ascending and descending using alternate picking at a speed at which you can do the entire pattern cleanly.
Here are the 7 modes or patterns on Video and Tablature:
Remember, go for being a clean player. Don't try to go full speed the first time you learn a pattern. Do it slowly and cleanly and build up to a higher tempo once you feel comfortable with the fingering.
A cool tool you can use to keep your tempo while practicing the different patterns is the Metronome. Experiment at low speeds until you can play the modes cleanly, then increase the speed.
