Easy… …or is it?

Just by doing this you can have a starting point to constructing more complex runs, and also have a neat exercise to practice or warm up with.
Here’s one of my trademark wild shred licks which covers a fair amount of the fretboard, showing how sometimes its best to keep it simple:
