A Triplet Exercise to Help Build Right Hand Dexterity

This exercise is straightforaward.Put it at a tempo you can play with ease! That means to struggle, no tension, and little to no mistakes. Once you find that tempo, put in the reps!. Doing this thing 50-100 times a day is how you build muscle memory. Bump the speed up only after you can play it cleanly and tension free at one tempo at least 5 times in a row.

This lick uses the 5th fret note to practice with, because that is what the triplet leads into. In measure 9 the first note starts with that note.
