The best FINGER EXERCISE ever. (Try at own risk…)

okay let’s hope it doesn’t happen but before we start please close your windows and get yourself some calming tea because this exercise may be a real pain in the butt for those who need it most when playing an instrument and the instruments it’s very important that you want the most result with the least amount of effort this efficiency lets you play faster more fluently should cause less stress and will in the end sound much better with the following exercise we try to accomplish that in three ways one minimizing unnecessary movement to training finger independency you don’t want to move your ring finger if you only need to move your index finger three minimizing the pressure that’s need to fret a note for most people the road to this super efficient playing can be a stress on its own but in the end playing with a proper technique is something you’ll benefit greatly from it’s just a matter of getting it into your muscle memory so now we need some close-ups so here’s what we’re gonna do we kind of play the arpeggio chord from the lowest to the highest note and we play a C major seven which is as follows for number ten on the D string for number nine on the g string for number eight on the b string and for number seven on the first the E string and here’s the but we can’t move our fingers from strings and we don’t want to hear two notes together so at first we’re gonna play the pinky when we’re gonna go to the next string you really is your pinkie said the string stops ringing and simultaneously you fret down your ring finger but you don’t move the pinky from the string you hold it on the string so it mutes [Music] then we do the same with our middle finger so the ring finger removed itself from a string and our middle finger is going to press down so now we’re trying to get it up to speed so as you can see we barely move our fingers so if you find this to be boring in any way please try it with our loops app loops with Z it’s a drum app which is gonna be available on iOS too probably within the next two months so that’s good news so we want to try a pop beat in 4/4 time signature not too fast let’s try the room instead groove and we can play along so it doesn’t sound that boring now I was playing it in 16th notes is that so fast you can try or slowing down the beat or you could just play it in sixth in eighth notes this was the most basic exercise example number one for example number two we also descending and ascending please note that for my right hand I’m using alternate picking [Music] up etc etc of course you could use your own technique but that’s just what I like to use so example number three is going to be a real challenge we’re gonna add the octave on top so then we should move our middle finger from the second string which goes to the first string fret number eight try to not move your ring finger when moving your middle finger so that goes like this building up the speed [Music] so the fourth example is going to use the same lick but now played in two different chords the first C major seven and the second chord is going to be our fourth degree in the key of C which means F C D E that’s right F so we start on F our pinkie slides all the way up to fret 15 so one chord and the four chord are both major seven chords so that’s why this example will sound perfectly in the key of C so the way I wrote it down lies like this so the last one it’s gonna be a real struggle for a lot of you guys because we’re gonna use our pinkie and our ring finger to create another movement in the bottom registers so we start the same exactly as our previous exercise just all the way up with the octave on the first string and back down now we’re gonna play a major seven on the T string which is fret 9 so we’re gonna get a little alternating action with the ring finger and their pinkie so this exercise addresses more than just the movement it also addresses the pinkie problem with a lot of you guys probably half so when playing these exercises I noticed my middle finger is a little bit dependent on what my pinkie does so when my pinkie moves especially over here my middle finger is also lifting up a little bit so I tried to avoid that [Music] [Laughter] so I really have to use all my brainpower to stop my middle finger from moving but why I do it long enough I don’t have to think about it again and it will get in my muscle memory so please when playing these exercises don’t start out too fast because that will defy the purpose of the exercise started real slow and if you have problem playing first you shouldn’t go on with the second because that’s a lot harder so build it up build it up downloadable guitar tabs of this exercise are available at my patreon page where you can if you really like what
