Guitar Lesson – Left Hand Exercise

I’ve uploaded a left hand (lefties the other left) guitar exercise, it is designed to strengthen the fretting hand, there is TAB and musical notation available in print format. It is quite simple to do this guitar exercise because it is just using fingers 1 and 2 across all  the strings, and then fingers 1 and 3, and lastly fingers 1 and 4.

 The Secret to this one is to keep the fingers that you AREN’T using, very close to the fretboard without touching the strings.  To be quite frank, I don’t think that this is a very musical exercise but it is one of the best ways I know to develop speed in the left hand.

 Once you have done the whole exercise at the first fret on the guitar, then move up one fret to the next one and so on.  I guarantee that if you do this exercise properly everyday for a week, your left hand fluency will develop incredibly.
