OCTAVE/NOTE LOCATION EXERCISE:
Where are all the F#'s? Transpose to all notes.

Going up, the guide finger is the index as it always slides into the "next" note.

This exercise can be elongated or shortened to accomodate the range of your guitar.

Let's say F#:

F# locations-up
Here it is in the sequencer, which does not allow for frets above 20.
Each time you see a note repeated at the same location, the first note is played by whatever finger in that position, the second is slid into with the index.

The fingering pattern is something like this:
1 - 3 - 1 - 3 - slide1 - 4 - slide 1 - 3 - slide1 - 3 - slide 1, etc.

This exercise and the accompanying downward pattern are found in another lesson, PHRASING: NOT WHAT YOU SAY, BUT HOW!
