Chromatic Warmup For Both Hands
Left Hand fingers noted as LH 1, LH 2, etc. Right Hand Fingers as P (thumb) I (index) M (middle) A (Ring).
Begin this exercise by playing the 6th string E open with RH I, then LH1 on 1st fret (F) play RH M, then keep LH1 on first fret while placing LH2 on 2nd fret, play RH I, while keeping LH1,LH2 on frets, place LH3 on 3rd fret (G) and play RH M, keeping all 3 LH fingers on fret, place LH4 on 4th fret and play (G#) RH I then move the fifth string, the fourth string, the third, second and first strings. The idea is that the left hand fingers will build strength and independence with coordination of the Right Hand. Play slowly. Have LH fingers play on fingertips like Ballerinas! Once mastered, you can play descending (from 1st string to sixth), play 8th notes, triplets, and sixteenths. Also try using a pick and alternate picking with Right Hand. Enjoy.
