Quick DADGAD Guitar Cross-String Exercise

Here is a quick DADGAD Guitar Cross-String exercise I have used daily for years now. It is something I wrote I think in the 90’s for my DADGAD playing. It helps with cross-string practice and forces the cross-string technique along side hammer-ons and other techniques. 

I like this exercise because it combines good cross-string practice in DADGAD but also adds hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides too – all in just two simple measures!. 

I will add a sound mp3 file here later, but here is the exercise now below. You can play this at any tempo also. I would start out slow and add speed as time goes on. I find that practicing this at various tempos actually helps with finger memory and technique.
