My girlfriend just pointed something out to me. She thinks my typing is influenced by my guitar playing..

On my left hand (fretting hand) I use up to 3 fingers to type.. on my right (picking) hand, I only ever use the index finger.

I can see what she means laugh.gif

What are you guys like with typing ?

I am typing this as a test to see how I type..

Thats kinda weird.. (Fretting) I use my pinky for shifting, my thumb for space bar, and the last 3 for typing. On my (Picking) I use my pinky for enter, ring is delete, pointer for space bar/typing, middle typing, thumb kinda just latches to the bottom of the keyboard. Thats so weird to think of it that way since in high school I used to take typing classes... Boy my teacher would cut off my hands if she could see this now. laugh.gif

I use all my fingers for typing because I had to learnt it at school and now I get used to it. The exams were "how many words can you write per minute?". I wasn't so fast but I have the technique. biggrin.gif

I mainly use my index fingers when typing...sometimes the middle and ring finger of the picking hand. But the left hand is pretty much limited to the index finger...I think I will check Adrian's "one finger guitar" lesson now...

I can type with 8 fingers (without the pinkies) and mostly without looking at the keyboard, but then again... I'm a programmer so I type a lot and my fastest key combination is CTRL+C, CTRL+V biggrin.gif

If my guitar playing was like my typing then a solo would sound like:

2 notes, bad note, stop. Swear ! Delete note. 5 more notes. Swear again ! Go back through the last 2 notes and delete one of them. Complete solo angrily and breathe out. laugh.gif

I type with all my fingers. I am not all that accurate, but I learned typing before I started playing the guitar. So I type like I was taught...pretty much.
