Well, I know we've all heard of Retarded Pinky Syndrome (RPS), but I discovered last night that I have developed a case of Retarded Ring Finger Syndrome (RRFS).

Instead of my Middle Finger and my Ring Fingers moving seperately as they should, I have discovered that they move more like one finger together than they do seperately.

Am I the only one who has this? If not, any tips for getting rid of it? :|

practice moving your fingers independently - do chromatic scales, you might even want to get one of those finger trainers...if i compare how i can move my fingers (after 3 years of playing) to how my non-guitarist friends can, i'm way ahead
just stick to it, practice and you're good

Whodicted

If you don't have your guitar on you (for example, at school), place your hand on your desk so the tips of your fingers are touching the desk and the bottom wrist is touching your desk(the part where you would cut yourself if you were emo, but I know you wouldn't do that ) Now push down hard with the middle finger while lifting the ring finger. Alternate between the fingers.

If you do have your guitar on you, start spider-walking as a warm-up exercisemaking sure that only one finger is touching the string at any given point in time. Also, try spier-walking all the way up except go only two frets at a time and use only the middle and ring fingers.

^basically just chromatic scales practice - just make sure you always have no more than one finger on the frets
