Lesson: Left Hand Finger Independence for Guitar

Lesson of the week: Left Hand Finger Independence. This exercise comes from one of the most popular books for the classical guitar: Pumping Nylon by American guitarist Scott Tennant. It’s a great reference/exercise book with short memorable exercises for warm ups or technique correction.  I love this exercise for training the fingers to have dexterity and independence but also for correcting the left hand position overall. Having to keep all the fingers down the entire time really helps to create a compact and well-aligned hand position. Plus, the first exercise is a nice gentle introduction with the second being more challenging. See more lessons from Pumping Nylon.
