Best Guitar Exercise, chromatic scale

Best Exercise for Beginners,
Playing chromatic scale is the best exercise for beginner or intermediate level guitarists. It gives the grip on the fretboard or making finger muscle.

Chromatic scale is pretty simple as follows:
Goal of this exercise is to apply four fingers on four frets in sequence, for this below tabs (chromatic scale) use first finger for 4th fret, second finger for 5th fret, third finger for 6th fret and at last pinky for playing 7th fret.
Do this exercise from 6th (lower E) string to 1st ( higher E) string.

E ---4-5-6-7---------------
A -------------4-5-6-7------
D-----------------------4-5-6-7------
G---------------------------------4-5-6-7-------
B-------------------------------------------4-5-6-7-----
E-----------------------------------------------------4-5-6-7-----

Now move again from 2nd string to 6th string
E ---------------------------------------------4-5-6-7---------
A------------------------------------4-5-6-7--------------
D-------------------------4-5-6-7-------------------
G--------------4-5-6-7-----------------------------
B --4-5-6-7-----------------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------------------------------
Now move one fret down, play 3, 4, 5th and 6th fret...
then play 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th......
now 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th fret.. Do this exercise daily at least 15 mins to have stronger grip on your six string instrument.
