how do you guys practice the flaxibility/strength of you fingers? I found a lot of sites that want us to do this :



In this exercise, we have to place our 1st to 4th finger on the 6 strings, start from 1st frat to 4th frat(without lifting the fingers), then move downward one finger at a time to 12 th frat. With such exercises, we need to bend our wrist.

But in one of the video, an experience old man told use never bend our wrist , here the video :

so how to we reach 6th string without actually bending our wrist?

finally, do you guys do these king of practice as in the figure ? i find it kind of boring.

thanks.

i've seen that exercise alot.
one way to make it more interesting is to change the order in which you play the notes,
3142, 4312, 2341, etc.

i tend to do those kind of excercises as warm-ups...
i find i can hit the four notes on the fat e string quite well without bending too much...
my wrist is bent about maybe 20 to 30 degrees from straight...
