About a practice routine

I began practicing with a routine I formed. and it's been a week since then. and im not feeling any difference.
I know that it should take more time till I can have some results, but I wanted to know if my routine covers the fundamentals for improving my technique, or in other words - is this routine ideal ?
Each one gets 10 minutes.

CHROMATIC ASCENDING/DESCENDING
C major scale
Sweep Picking minor chords
Sweep Picking major chords
Altered Scale ascending/descending
Pentatonic Scale
Triads
Modes
Sight Reading
Improvising



Second. what do you think is more essential or worth ?
Practicing with patterns (like chromatic 1234-1234) or through music (for example, practicing via playing a Guthrie Govan's solo)

I would back up a step, and ask you, what are your goals?

Before answering whether your routine is good for you, we need to know where you want to end up.

That said, Pebber's program will deliver you to whatever goals you have, so I'm inclined to point you in that direction. :D

Thank you for the reply !
My main idol is Guthrie Govan.
I'm trying to develop a technique similar to his.

Basically, fast alternate picking. Sweep picking. and full control over scales like the major scale and it's modes.

If you really want to just get your technique up to speed, i would just stick with module one and two. maybe a little scale practice too. And of course always leave a little time for song practice too.

you may not be seeing a lot of progress as you are spreading yourself to thin. To be fair ten minutes on each exercise a day aint gonna get you to guthrie's level.

If you have 1 hour 30 minutes, try 30 mins on right hand, 30 mins left 15 mins on scales 15 mins song practice
you need to stick to one thing for a long while to get really good at it.

But you have found the right place here to sort your technique out

You say "CHROMATC ASCENDNG/DESCENDING" however for the past 4 decades
I have seen thousands of guys do it wrong. Why dont you post a video of your
practicng so we can see what you are doing whether you are doing it rgt or not.
Also - what is an "altered scale?" define that for us and tell us HOW you are
practicing it.

Hi all

i would like to open again this important topic. Like you said "Farelli" "Before answering whether your routine is good for you, we need to know where you want to end up". You are right. My probleme is less différent, but goes in the same direction. I'm learning Jazz, and there is many concept that I'm oblige to master like theory and technics. For that I need some advice if that possible whitch can help me progressivly master at least 70% of them in 2 years, a good program in which routines can be well defined.
thank you in advance
