I seem to be in this rut of playing with only 3 fingers and not incorporating my Pinky as much as I would like too.

do you have Any Advise for Practising using my Pinky to get it up to the same speed as the other fingers.

And to be able to play clearly with it.

Thanks smile.gif

Well,you need to use it a bit more I guess smile.gif
First,take any 4 frets in a row and use every finger for one fret.
Play this patern in combinations like these:
1234
4321
1243
1432
1342 etc.

That way you'll have pinky in use like rest of your fingers.
Also,try to find a Grip Master,to gain more power in your fingers.

My mistake, I thought first it was a general question for everybody about the pinky. But the question was asked to you, so it 's a bit rough that I come btwn even if I found the question interesting.

And my question was actually about the right hand pinky because you and I like both tapping and the pinky is the tricky one, and more and more players use it now.
