HOW TO USE THE JAMEXAM PRACTICE PAGE:
First, the user chooses the picture of the instrument they will play, either Guitar, Bass Guitar, Ukulele or Baritone Ukulele, and can then choose to either:
A) Manually scroll through each scale stopping on the scale position where they want to practice.
B) The user can set A TIMER that will count down to 0 and will automatically change the scale to another one. The next scale will be in the same key but in a different position on the neck. Working this way enables the musician to work on mechanics while training their ears, hands and eyes to the positions on the neck.
