Guitar Warm Up Exercises - Part 2

In Part 1 the warm up exercises ascended and descended the strings in order. Part 2 uses some of the same techniques from Part 1, and introduces skipping strings. Skipping strings will help your coordination to smoothly play strings that are not directly above or below the current string you are playing on.
