One of the biggest hurdles many guitarists face early in their development is being able to connect chords, scales and arpeggios in their playing without having to jump all over the fretboard between shapes.
Always having a scale under your fingers for every chord shape you use is a great way to learn the fretboard, providing you with soloing material at the same time. This exercise will help get you into this way of thinking with seven diatonic chords on both the 6th and 5th strings, as well as the seven scale shapes that fall under each chord. This will be an amazing tool to help you learn many aspects of the guitar, and improve your soloing.
