Finger Exercises 1-2
Use alternate picking.
Keep each finger on each note long as possible, don’t cut the notes short.
Guitar Finger Exercises 1 2 are two finger exercises that are a really great way to build technique with specific fingers on your fretting hand. I feel that these patterns are deceptively difficult because you would think that less fingers would be easier, But I think because there are less notes on each string, you are switching from string to string faster. So in turn these patterns end up being more difficult than if you had four notes on one string.
This pattern is the first and second finger starting on the first fret sixth string, on the first and second frets. Play this pattern on each string, when you reach the first string reverse the pattern. Repeat the second fret on the first string, and work your way back down the strings. When you get to the first fret on the six string, shift your first finger to the second fret and repeat the whole pattern from there.
Play the sequence on each fret working your way to the twelfth fret. Once you play through the twelfth fret, shift back to the eleventh fret. At this point just work your way back down the neck until you get back to the first fret. The exercise
