Hey!

I've started to seriously work on my speed, and doing some 3-note-per-string exercises.

the problem is this: When I'm almost reaching my speedlimit, my ring finger doesn't wanna hit the string from the top, it just lands flat on the string, so it sometimes also frets the string below my target string. You can almost say that I'm hitting the string with my fingerprints, not the top of the finger.

Is this a problem at all, or is it just fine? I'm kinda worried that this is blocking my way to shred sad.gif

I would say you might be exceding your speed limit, if that's what you are experiencing! Try slowing down or make up an exercise which specifcally aims on your problem finger.
