Hey everyone, i was wondering something today, and so i thought i'd post it since there isn't really anything like it that i can find.

What i wanna ask about is NON-GUITAR (meaning you do not have a guitar with you at the time) hand-finger work outs.

Stuff to do with your hands to get the strength and co-ordination and whatever else (keep it clean guys, we're better than that, lol)

Stuff like rolling a tennis ball around the palm of your and with your finger tips, or twiddling a pen with your fingers, or anything else proven or succesful. (Doesn't have to include having an object like a ball or pen).

i know it may seem nerdy to ask, but i wanted something to do when i'm bored at school etc. so i thought what better way then to exercise for guitar! lol

anyway, thanks guys

Some are gonna say fap.
But you know, I'm gonna take it to the next level and say fap while you finger your ass.

Builds up finger dexterity.

THAT'S RIGHT GUYS, I soooo went there.

touch your thumb to each of your other fingers, (pointer, middle, ring, pinkie, ring, middle, pointer, etc) do that for a while, do both hands at once. when you get really good, do different fingers on each hand.

Well, I have nothing to add.
Whatever happened to sweet Jane?

Place your hand on a table with all the fingers touching the surface, and maintaining a shape as if a ball were placed underneath your palm (much like the required technique for piano).

Lift up the first and third fingers whilst keeping the other two stationary, lower, then repeat with the other fingers.

I've found it's helped quite a bit with my co-ordination.

put your left hand above a table, then put these fingers (in order) to the table:

Thumb, Middle, Index, Ring, Middle, Pinky
just do that over and over until you can do it really fast (I can :D)

there's also this:

Make a V sign with each pair of fingers in turn, keeping the spare fingers close in and straight.

I like all of these (serious) suggestions, I might have to do some of these. The V one is really good, so is the touching thumb to fingers one but I got good at that too fast and now it's easy
MaKing thE possiBlE...
...totaLlY impossible

Hammer.

And its strange to say this on "the serious note"
Also you can burn your fingers slightly Ive heard people.

i tend to crush any cans or...anything crushable with my fingers like im fretting
and i try crushing things with just my pinky to make it STRONGER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

I wank with my left hand, i don't know why but i do, i guess it helps dexterity in some way and it translates over to my guitar playing because i do alot of slides as fills.

Also, twiddling a coin through your fingers helps as well and makes you look like an evil genius.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

I assume they would strengthen the fingers, which is good.

EDIT: I meant stress ball type things.

You can have fun aswell as excercising but remember dont take it to the extremes if you do decide to try it out because i arent going to be responsible for sexual harrasment charges.
