As I repeatedly make it abundantly super-clear in this forum, I know all of my notes! Everywhere. And fast, really fast. Not only that, but I have been playing scales, chords, intervals, blah, blah since the 60s. My main focus right now is to combine 2 or 3 different sequences to make longer runs, usually no more than 2 beats long. This is kind of modeled after the blues singer's effect of ending a phrase by descending in pitch on the last syllable. SRV does this in a fairly exaggerated way, not that it is bad. Guitarists also use this technique when soloing. Otis Rush does this beautifully, while Joe Bonamassa does not, always. Not to bash Joe, as his ideas and emotional colors are often very rich and beautiful. Occasionally, he gets a little long-winded in those descending runs. Anyway, I'm interested in this technique, even if I hope that I don't come across as mechanical. Not only do I combine 2 or 3 different sequence patterns, but I also try to disrupt the flow by inserting an extra note or two somewhere. I might add the rhythmic value of the new note to the length of the run, or I might have to double up the rhythm for a couple of notes. I like both methods. Now, if you're also at the point where getting around the guitar in all keys is not an issue in itself, how do you practice when you are learning a new pitch/rhythm combination that you want to master and get under your fingers and ear? Some ways this might be done: 1 key per day 1 key per two days (I like this right now) 2-12 keys per day no special keys anymore. You play things where and when you want, and try to make sure that you keep up the ability to freely navigate among keys.
