The PERFECT Guitar Exercise for an AMAZING Fret-Hand!

Every "Guitar Technique Workout" won’t produce the same results. And, as practicing guitar players, there are many different areas of skill that we need to target. Some of those workouts will target the fret-hand, while others target the pick-hand. This means that the correct technique must be used for the best results...



In this video, I’m going to give you a guitar technique workout for the fret-hand that is going to help you build better skill for accomplishing finger-rolls without having to feel as if you are leaving anything on the table.




The key to developing fret-hand effectiveness is to master individual finger control and develop smooth vertical single-note transitions from one adjacent string to the next.


The mastery of these vertical single-note transitions can be accomplished by way of developing the best finger-roll technique possible. In this lesson I've provided a workout to help master the use of ascending and descending finger-roll motions. 


You may never have known that doing this finger-roll idea was so valuable for creating clean, accurate single notes on the guitar. But, after completing this lesson, you will have the tools to develop this idea to a much higher level of skill.


In this lesson I’m going to put together for you what I would call the perfect guitar exercise for getting amazing fret-hand results. 


The reason why this exercise I have for you becomes the perfect fret-hand workout is because we are going to be targeting one of the most problematic technical areas that happens to the fretting-hand, and that is being able to produce a clean sounding finger-roll technique.


The finger-roll is similar to barring, but instead this is a technique that occurs when a note has to be performed from one string over to another string - when both of those strings are running parallel to each other. 


Normally, what happens is when a guitarist who is still developing this technique goes to execute the idea they will unintentionally produce bleed over from the two vertically aligned notes. 


It can be tough to fix this, but I’ve got a great exercise that will go a long way to helping you master the movement. Let’s get started into this right now.






Example 1).
The first exercise operates between the 1st and 2nd guitar strings. Learn the pattern and play the drill all over the guitar fingerboard.



Coming up next, I’m going to go over how you can work on improving the finger-roll technique when playing from notes that exist on lower strings. But before we head into that, I want to tell you about a special promotional offer that’s related to my; Handouts Collection eBook.



I wanted to take a minute to let you know, that if you want to learn even more about scales and theory I have a great offer for you.

With any donation over $5, or any merchandise purchase from my Tee-Spring store, I’ll send you free copies of THREE of my most popular digital handouts.

One is called, “Harmonized Arpeggio Drills” (it’ll train you on developing your diatonic arpeggios).

Another one is my “Barre Chord” Handout which includes a page showing all the key signatures along with a chord progression that applies barre chords.

Plus, you’ll get my Notation Pack! It has 8 pages of important guitar worksheets for notating anything related to; music charts, guitar chord diagrams, and TAB.

As a BONUS, (from my "Over 40 and Still Can't Play a Scale" video), I'll also throw in a breakdown of all of the chords that are diatonic to the "F Major" scale.

As an EXTRA BONUS for my Phrygian Dominant video, I'll also throw in a breakdown featuring all of the chords that are diatonic to the Phrygian Dominant scale.

Just send me an email off of the contact page of to let me know about either your donation or your Merchandise purchase and I’ll email you those digital handouts within 24 hrs.   



Another note travel direction that we need to get good at is the direction of a lower string tone moving up, (by way of a finger-roll) to an upper string tone. When we do this movement, the technical approach is basically the opposite of how we did the “higher to lower” finger-roll. 






Example 2).
The next exercise operates between the 3rd and 2nd guitar strings.





The final exercise is going to focus on taking the finger-roll technique across a greater number of guitar strings. This time, we’ll be practicing the exercise to include an ascending finger-roll across the; 4th, 3rd and 2nd strings!


Example 3).
The final exercise operates between the 4th, 3rd and 2nd guitar strings. Here’s how it all works.
