Topic: Fingering Exercises for Guitar
Get back into your music and take it to levels you never dreamed possible.
Fingering Exercises will move those great solo leads from your brain to your hand movements and back to the understanding of music as a whole.
I will use a numbering system to represent a right handed player.
In this fashion, O1-01-01 With the guitar neck in your left hand,
the first 01- is strings, top to bottom, (1 2 3 4 5 6)
second -01- is frets on the neck, from tuning nut to bridge.
third -01 is your fingers. Index 1, second 2, ring 3, pinkie 4.
Now try a G major scale with 8 notes
1-3-2/ 1-5-4/ 2-2-1/ 2-3-2/ 2-5-4/ 3-2-1/ 3-4-3/ 3-4-4/
PLay it up and down, the more you do it the better you'll get.
The noter are G A B C D E F# G
Play it with a track or a friend strumming a Gmaj chord until it's smooth and fluid. You're well on your way to getting that solo gig.
In the future, I'll only be showing scales, patterns and notes.
For now, practice this little A minor arpeggio also.
1-5-1/ 1-8-4/ 2-7-3/ 2-12-4/ 3-10-2/ 4-9-1/ 4-14-3/ 5-13-2/ 6-12-1/ 6-17-4
All that I intend to share here has been thoroughly written and taught by many so if I am trudging through old waters please inform, so that we may move ahead.
