This week I have another technique exercise for the left hand. This time we’re looking at high speed – wide stretch lines so take things slowly!

One Tough Fretting Hand Exercise

First of all let’s work through the basic line in C Major:

Work Through The Cycle Of Fourths

Once you have the exercise under your fingers you can work through the cycle of fourths:

C F Bb Eb Ab Db Gb B E A D G

Start out slow and focus on your technique:

  • Keep the fingers curled as possible
  • Strive for full note duration
  • Keep the 2nd finger parallel to the frets
  • Keep the thumb in the back of the neck
