Thanks for reading my blogs so far.
On top of my blog about having a good warm up exercise, it’s also important to have one to develop your little finger strength.
Many people seem to neglect their little finger, but if you want to become an accomplished guitarist you need to take advantage of all your fretting fingers.
Have a go at the below exercise where you’ll use just your 3rd and 4th fingers only. The pattern is in groups of 3 and you can see it’s been displayed ‘ascending’ (going up in pitch) and also ‘descending’ (going down in pitch)
The one descending is where you start with your little finger and the one ascending you start with the 3rd.
You should find that this helps massively – think of it as a finger gym exercise for the guitar. (If you want a larger picture click on the picture above)
