Fingering Question


Recommended Posts

I'm really enjoying this program!! I've learned more in the past 2 weeks than the past 2 years. . THANKS!!!!
I'm working on the 3 various Major scales and on the long stretches I find it easier using my ring finger going down the scale but my middle finger as I come back up?? My muscle memory is really taking effect and I'm becoming very proficient with the scales but now I'm concerned the way I've been doing the scales is going to come back to bite me later? Is it OK that I'm doing it this way? Thanks!!

Practice the dexterity (if you can on daily basis). For me its taken a long time to get strength into my ring & pinky fingers but after more than a year its getting easier. Maybe its an individual or age thing. Its nice when you can finger pick notes from chords, position play at different octaves and key notes and of course add in chords and triads, to give the piece your playing some good feel and body. As they say guitar is a journey, enjoy the learning.
