Does any one have some good excercises that allows your fingers to free-up... so that you can have better control over each finger on the fretboard... currently my third and 4th are the two fingers that i can control too well when close to the guitar body due to small fret gaps and all my fingers bunched together, i just loose control over them, when they are more spaced apart on the lower notes its much easier.

Got any excercises i can do which might help me gain better control on my little finger?

^ just keep using it. It takes awhile.


I would suggest:

Learn some songs that utilize the pinky..... practice & play those....... This will train your finger, in a musical context.
shred is gaudy music

practise.

If you're like me you will constently switch to your third finger instead of using your pinky to bend certain notes or whatever. Just consciously force yourself to do it. Alls good. Practice makes perfect

I tend to over use my third finger. A lot of the people I know use their pinky to finger power chords, I just use my index and third fingers. It may look goofy, but it gets the job done.

I know these are all my own stuff, but I think they will help:

The idea is though, you can use any exercise that uses the fingers independantly of one another (i.e. not just going up and/or down on one string) and keep practicing! Take things really slowly if you have to, to really focus on using your fourth finger as much as he others.
