Here’s a great exercise that we can incorporate into every scale and scale shape. The basic idea is to go up the diatonic arpeggio then descend the scale and repeat it throughout the shape. When we descend the exercise, we descend the diatonic arpeggio then ascend the scale. This is an example through one scale and one shape, try them with as many as you can (Mixolydian, Minor, Dorian, Lydian Dominant, etc.). Thank you!
