The question asked was how to improve strength and avoid fatigue in the left hand. My answer mainly focuses on accuracy, relaxation, and awareness. Some muting exercises are explored as well as finger, vibrato, and on-off exercises. Find more video lessons here, or check out pages for free sheet music or gear reviews.

I have just had an operation to straighten my left thumb and it has not worked. My thumb is bent in on the first joint an out at the second, making barre work very difficult/ Any tips or hints to help this condition? John Hartley
How was barre before the operation? It could just take some time to get mobility back. Check out my Barre Lesson here.
