I have been working on legato for a couple months now I am good at legato with 1 2 and 4 finger and 1 and 3 finger but my 1 3 4 patteren blows. Its way slower that the others and ruins the flow of lagato licks. I have been just repeating the patteren over and over by just picking each note. But it seems to get me no where. I was wondering if there are any good excercises out there that you guys know. THanks in advance.

The weak link is the 3 - 4 combination, it's the weakest finger pair. Try doing trilling exercises using just those two fingers, it'll take a long time to build up the independance so mix it up by running variations on the chromatic exercises, focus on the 3/4 finger pair though, it's definitely the weak link.

ok thanks i'll give it a shot. should i pick every note or just do legato to build the finger stengh or does it reeally matter. I know legato is hammer ons and pull offs but picking could increases its strengh too.


Legato, especially if it's a legato run that's giving you problems.
