I have a big problem. Every time my pinky is down my 3rd finger is mondo tense. I likely have other tensions, but this one is the most obvious. Can anybody help me with some advise on how to relieve myself of the tension. Like a step by step way to get rid of tension in fingers. You'd probably help a bunch of other guitarists to . Thank you in advance.
well i'm no expert but i'd say just keep putting your pinky down and moving your 3rd finger to see if it will loosen up......if that makes any sense
I use to have the same problem. I started doing the finger exercises on that John Petrucci video "Rock Discipline," and it kind f fixed itself. It's out there on Google Video if you look for it. Worth a try--it's all about getting your fingers to work independently of one another. Good luck.
