As guitarists, we all came across 1234 exercises, guitar gyms, picking workouts, speed methods, chops development and so on. You may find them boring, you may find them useful but as a shredder you'll have to spend some time on them.
My beloved method is DITONES by Donato Begotti and Roberto Fazari.
That book had me started practicing on a daily base with goals in mind, having and idea of where I was going. Something that I have never experienced before.
I also started to use it to approach music and see a lot of guitar stuff ditones-like or ditones-oriented.
Here I’d like to discuss how ditones can be further extended, what are the best ways to practice them and approach the guitar without getting stuck into the playing-exercise guy and explore ways in which we can fill that technique to music gap.
[That’s me, except that I also fail the 200bpm scale]
So here we go: how can we get the most out of ditones?
