  • how do you warmup before practicing?

    what do you do to warmup your fingers so that you can use your full skills, speed and stamina?

    I notice that somedays I am fast and others I feel very sloppy and frustrated and can't even warmup right.

    What do you guys do?

        I don't need to warm up much if at all, but when I do I'll do some chromatic scales/excercises.

          I usually take a dump while the amp tubes warm up.

              Try soaking your fretting hand in warm water for about 5 minutes. It warms the muscles and tendons. Try to keep the tips of your fingers dry so your callouses won't go soft on ya.

                      Doesn't it make him piss in his pants, like when you dip a sleeping person's hand into warm water?
                      I am an American, Chicago born—Chicago, that somber city—and go at things as I have taught myself, free-style, and will make the record in my own way: first to knock, first admitted; sometimes an innocent knock, sometimes a not so innocent. —Saul Bellow, The Adventures of Augie March (1953)

                          Scales, sweeps and maybe solos from some of the songs you're about to play. Start slowly and work your way. A good warmup takes about 30 minutes but even 5-10 helps a lot.
