Hi Kristofer

Could you indicate some exercise (even dedicate to it an entire lesson biggrin.gif ) in order to increase the left hand's speed? especially ring-finger and little-finger aren't independent as they would have mad.gif , there're specific exercises in order to 'untie' these two finger?


Guitars: Gibson SG '65, Classical Yamaha CG-110
Effects: Zoom 9000
Amp: Fender Studio 85

Excuse me for my english.

Basically any exercise that focuses on hammer-ons with those fingers is what I would recommend.

Such as Muris's Fake Picking:

You might want to pick a segment that only focuses on those two fingers. When doing these kind of things be careful as rusty fingers tend to get injuries easily!

I have the same problem....
My ring and pinky finger are sorta.

Things really started to get better once i tried Kris 1-0-1 alt pick lesson.

Kris when are you going to come up with a new lesson to alt pick series. Your lessons (along with some of Pavel's, Gabby's and Muris') boosted my speed (but mainly your alt pick lessons).
