Hey Guys,

I've been very busy lately improving my alternative picking technique and have had good success so far. My picking hand has become very good, but I've noticed an issue with my fretting hand that has been an issue for a while.

I've noticed the problem whilst concentrating on my fretting finger. All my fingers except for my pinkie finger hover closely to the fingerboard ready for action, but the pinkie likes to fling it self far away after releasing the fretted note. I can control it only at really slow speeds while concentrating on it very hard, otherwise, muscle memory kicks in and the control is lost.

So my question(s) to you all is,

Should this be something I should be concerned about and go about retraining that finger?

Has anyone had similar problems?

Does anyone know a good method to help fix this problem?

Is it worth the effort/necessary?

Any help and opinions would be much appreciated

(If my description of the problem is hard to understand, le me know and Ill make a Video)

Hi everyone,

So I'm back on GMC after taking a year of wandering around the world and generally taking it easy!

But now its time to get back to it! I've moved to a new city, got a new job and gotten back to my guitar! I've got a new practice strategy and a renewed enthusiasm for music, so I'm very excited to get back into GMC again!
It all seems to be going business as usual here at GMC, and I'm curious to see where everyone is at.

I'll catch you all around in the Forums!

Original lesson: Bend 'Em All - Bending Technique Lesson by Lale Nikic

Hi Guys, Time for some technique work. My vibrato on my bent notes has greatly improved through this lesson. But there's still more work to do!

Original lesson: Tool Style Lesson by Joe Kataldo

Hi Guys, This ones been a long time in the works. It seems simple, but it took a long time to get all the small details and nuances. It revealed a lot of limitations in my playing that's for sure! Hope it looks good in your eyes too! Tim
