Finger strength and so what are my answers. I also like to bar this type of power chord with my 3rd finger.

Yeah if I were you I'd just practice slowly, with your pinky, and build up at a steady pace.

ok

have you tried putting your pinky first?

like when you are going to play the chord, the first finger you should put on the fretboard should be the pinky, try that one..

Try playing all the songs you know with you pinky and your ring finger to build strength and agility with those to. Id just barre it and use my pinky or ring finger the hold the other two.

Keep stretching your pinky across frets, I always did, I used to only use index and ring but now use my pinky aswell.


Say, put your index finger on the 1st fret of the E string, and with your ring finger, just keep stretching as far as you can, see how far you can reach and push further everytime. Then do the same with your pinky. Just keep repeating it.
