Therefore, it makes sense to practice your scales in different ways to become versatile. I find that one of the best things about adding different rhythms to your scales is that it accentuates any problem you might have. For example, in a dotted rhythm exercise a shift in the left hand may occur during the fast rhythm. If you can execute the shift cleanly then you know you need to work on your shift.
