G Major - 2nd Position - High Octave - Strength and Coordination

  • Strength and Coordination
  • Key   G
  • Tempo   60 bpm
  • Tuning   GDAE
This exercise will help with your strength and coordination, use the tempo slider if you need to. Use the focus feature to loop an individual measure if you need to. Pause the player and go a note at a time if you need to. Work at your pace. Strive for note clarity, then work on your timing. When going from a fretted note to a higher fretted note on one string, leave the finger on the lower note down. For example, when playing measure 3, leave your first finger down on the 2nd fret. This way all you'll need to do is raise and lower your middle finger to the 3rd fret. Keep the middle finger close to the fingerboard when lifting away. This is an EXCELLENT way to build strength and stamina in the fretting hand! When going from a higher fretted note to a lower one, start with both fingers needed down. Keep the lower note down and again, just raise and lower the finger used for the higher note.
