Left Hand Exercise: Shifts and Slurs on GuitarShifts are so common in repertoire but rarely practiced by students. This exercise combines slurs and shifts to develop an accurate and mobile left-hand. The trick is to not tense up during the shifts. Think of each shift as an opportunity to release the tension from the hand and relax. Aim for a shift directly to the fret without any after-the-fact adjustments. Play right next to the frets and keep all the fingers/knuckles parallel with the strings.

This exercise & lesson, No. 14 – Intermediate Shifts and Slurs Exercise for Classical Guitar, is a great way for intermediate guitarists to practice both shifts and slurs all at once. I love these types combination exercises. The video walks you through the exercise and gives a small lesson.
