    Decided to have a crack at this today.  Not spot on yet but I think I will use this a s a practice piece for warm up on picking.

    Nicely done Rocky.
    I think that your idea of using this as a warm up is great. It is just fast enough and keeps your fingers moving.

    Hi Rocky, Are you doing Griff's pentatonic scales course or are you practicing the scales only? If you are doing the course I was wondering how you find it working with the BGU course material. cheers Ally

    No, I am doing it out of the BGU course book starting at lesson 15 page 50 and picking out from there on.  But I also bought another book from the music shop "Chords and Scales for guitarists" by David Mead(ISBN 978-1-86074-432-7) which I find very clear and well explained.  I am sure Griff covers it somewhere in his courses but I got this locally and it also has a CD with it for the exercises and it only cost £17.
