Hello guys! Finger independence is something that is a bit boring to train but that is fundamental for every guitar player. I found this cool video where an Argentinean guitar players shows some exercises that aren't very musical but that are good to train your fingers independence. He is speaking in Spanish but you will be able to learn what he is playing since he play it very slow. Please note that he keeps the higher string ringing while he player the other strings...




Do you know some other good exercises for this?

I had A LOT of problems with finger independence between the ring and the pinky, and since I never ever used the pinky, it was extremely weak. Until I did Ben's land of legato series.

In my opinion, I don't think I've ever come across a more fun and effective lesson that taught three things to me at the same time: finger independence, finger strength (my ring and pinky fingers got worked out a lot!) and, of course, legato.

The first and second parts of the series have been exceptionally effective for me, since they focussed more on dexterity rather than speed.

I'd definitely recommend that one to anyone having any issues regarding finger independence, strength or legato smile.gif

Excellent stuff Cosmin! I think that it's a great idea for training while you are not at home and able to play guitar.

You can also try the exercise in my video with finger combos obtained through permutations:

1234 2341 3412 4123 for instance biggrin.gif

Found a similar exercise in English

Great way to improve picking accuracy, dexterity, stretching all in one quick exercise.

And I guess you can use it for ear training modes and intervals?

Precisely! Great string skipping, ear training and fretboard knowledge - all in one! biggrin.gif Try it, by all means and not in only one scale - you should try it in all the possible keys wink.gif

Post some examples if you wish, mate! Why not start with the C, D, E and F major scales for instance? smile.gif

I like this one and yes! it can be also great for ear training and learning new scales. I will add this one to my Vchat routines!

Great one! Have you seen his two clinics? He has one very old and another new one. Both are very interesting.
