The idea is to use Left hand fingers 1 and 2 on the first fret, fingers 2 and 3 on the second fret, and fingers 3 and 4 on the 3rd fret. Begin by placing the first finger on first fret of string 6,play, then place 2nd finger on first fret on string 5, play, then first finger on 4th string, 1st fret, play, 2nd finger on 3rd string, 1st fret, play, 1st finger on 2nd string, 1st fret, play, 2nd finger on 1st string, 1st fret play.. then do it in reverse. Next move to the 2nd fret start with 2nd finger alternate with 3rd finger, etc... then 3rd fret and so on. I have found it helpful to do fingers 3 and 4 twice, since they are the weakest. The key is to pay slowly and consistently. You may feel like your in physical therapy, but it will strengthen your left hand, creating independence and you will play cleaner. Have fun.
