  • We all have often wondered why our guitar playing doesn't sound as good as it should. We often feel that new gear will fix the problem, but the truth is that part of the problem comes from our finger placement. Today's lesson will focus on how to play a simple piece of music with effective fingering.

    One of the very first things you want to focus on while playing is eliminating all the unnecessary noises. To do so, we'll start by muting all the strings that are not being strummed with the palm of the right hand. But that is not the only thing to consider. Each fingers of your left hand can be used to mute all undesired noises. To do so, while you are pressuring a fret, try to use that finger to slightly touch the adjacent string. You don't want to put any pressure on that string, just touch it enough so that if accidentally played, that string will not ring.

    This finger placement takes a while to get right, but can do wonders to your playing. The clarity of the notes and precision that will come out of good finger placement are the secret to beautiful playing. Study the licks and play them as clean as possible. Focus on finger placement and be patient, it will pay of!
