Up The Neck

One Octave G Scale - 7th position - 1/8th Notes

Playing up the neck may present a few challenges. First off, we aren't using any open strings. Every note must be fretted. Secondly, we will be using our pinky. That may be tough if you've never done it. If that is the case spend a lot of time playing this scale slowy using the 1/8th notes. The longer you hold the pinky and other fingers down, the more those hand and finger muscles are engaged. Putting in your "Reps" of practicing the scale will help build muscle, and muscle memory. Crawl before you walk, walk before you run.
