Here's a little video I did on scale technique.

Great video! Thanks very much. :D

It's always moving onto a next string that trips me up, when playing at speed. Building up a scale, one bit at a time, looks like a good idea, as well as practicing twos and threes on the same string.

I'm going to try it, in the two nasty scales in Capricho Arabe. I say nasty, because you have to play them accelerando and with a crescendo, ideally.

Break your scales right down into rhythmic groupings and string groupings , keep it slow and small movements. Good luck.
