Guitar Student Gets Fingers Under Control!



;

My online classroom student Nico is getting his fingers under control! Watch this video from my classroom and see the perfect form he has achieved in essential finger combination 1-3.

It took a few months of correct practice, but notice these things:
1) Equal curvature of each finger as it approaches and plays its note.
2) Equal separation of each finger, no squeezing or lifting.
3) Control of 4 (pinky) as the other fingers play.

These are essential prerequisites for relaxed and easy guitar playing.
