The gig bag book of scales for all guitarists

Started working with this book the other day. I was using a combination of playing scales on my guitar and recording audio files in Cubase. Once the scale was recorded, you can then loop what you recorded and play that scale over and over again.  An interesting alternative is to play the scale starting the third off of where the recorded note starts. This generates thirds and forces you to become more familiar with the various fingerings. Scales will help build finger strength as well.
