String skipping 101 - ok, I'm bored, lets get started

Well, after a couple hours of studying, I need a break, and I've got nothing productive to do here, so I thought I'd do something productive on Jemsite. *So here we go, string skipping.
First or all, to start with, lets us 3 notes per string, I find this one the easiest to do with a legato run, for the first example, lets us the Ionian mode in G with 3 notes per string.
To start with, go slow, with a metronome, speed up as your comfort level increases. *I prefer the sound of this run done all with hammer on's , but it is crisper if you pick it all. *Practice both ways.
Here is the same idea, only in G Aeolian (minor) again with 3 notes per string.
Then, there are some funky variations that can be done, here's one in G Ionian again
OK, so how's it going so far? *good? great! then keep on reading.
Here's some that sound kewl, but are a little trickier.
Then there are some kewl two handed ones we can play with () are tapped notes
Then, we can do not only string skipping, but jump it all over the fretboard for a little more snap!
Well, that's enough for now, a guitar in my lap would be helpful right now, but since they're all in another city right now, I can't remember any others off the top of my head, but I'll add to this when I can.
Have fun with it, that's what it's here for!!!
