Hi guys,
Im looking for some good lead guitar exercises that will blow my mind :P to help increase speed, dex, awkwardness, hand coordination ect. . .

I have checked ultimate guitar out but they dont have much interesting stuff. . .

Thanks

Try running some scales and arpeggios.
Start slow and gradually increase speed until you can do it fluently on an acoustic or clean guitar.

Run your normal scale exercises but do them in 3rd's.

A chord is constructed with 3rd's 1 3 5 7 9 11 13...

Your scales and runs will sound less "scaly" and more musical.

Well, It's not that basic anymore if you extend it. Take any chord structure and then try to play only certain intervals of it and play arpeggios or arpeggiate a whole song. If you can include that into your improvising its a pretty amazing thing to be able to do.
