The exercise focuses on building Flexibility on the fretboard. It is important to practice this exercise slow. This exercise also helps us visualise the fretboard through the whole neck and visualise the notes of the scale in a pattern, which makes it easier to learn and remember.

The exercise is played in three different octaves of the scale i.e. all three are in different pitch.
