Sounds like the maggio warm-up to me.

On that "note" I don't really play pedal tones to help me or anything, I just play them because they sound wicked when you play them in tune, like ol' arturo in his solos.

I have noticed though, that they have been training my ears. I can tell when I'm in tune or not without a tuner now, unless its really close.
