Exercise 1. Here you will be practice moving the
finger group.
You have to move them across the guitar to the
strings right beside where you were.
We nick name this “Creeping”.
Keep your fingers together as a group when you
lift them off and when you put them down. Pick
them up together, move them together and put
them down together.
Don't worry about the sound of this exercise
as some of the note combinations sound a
little off. You must still try to get a clean
sound though. The aim is to get your fingers
moving in the right manner.
Practice as often as you need to perfect
moving this finger groups as it is the basis of
half the major chords. When you have control
over the finger groups then you will find it
easier to have control over the major chords.
