Practice always makes everything perfect, and if not, it would alleviate you into something better. But most of the time, we can’t help but accept the fact that it gets boring sometimes. I do believe that too. Especially when you are practicing scales. You have to do it over and over again. But that’s how it is. If you really want to learn, you have to overcome the boredom.
Fortunately for us, there is a way to overcome this. It’s neither a shortcut nor another scheme. It is simply a method of practicing scales. All you have to do is to find a way to spice up and improvise those scales so that they would look exciting and you wouldn’t get bored. That easy. So how do we start?
First, take the pentatonic E scale. Now, does it slowly at first then after a while try to add more notes to it? And then move up and down the fret board. I guarantee you that it is much more fun to do it that way. Sometimes, you don’t have to play the right scale; you just have to make your fingers move independently. Just make sure that the notes are in tune.
