MINI LESSON #1 (GUITAR): WARM-UP - THE CHROMATIC SCALE

Don't forget your warm-ups :)  This is a great stretch for your fingers and to get them separated out.  Make sure to keep each finger down on the fretboard as you move up the string.  This is the "stretch" part.  Coming down, don't worry about lining up your fingers.  If you can't reach four frets, start with two, then move to three and pretty soon you'll be able to stretch to four frets in no time!
