Guitar Finger Dexterity Exercise

In this lesson you will learn a guitar finger dexterity exercised called Spider Exercise 1. Now this exercise benefits both the right and left hands but the focus in the start is really going to be on your fretting hand. In my Complete Beginner Guitar Course, I have more exercises to help you master control in both the fretting hand and picking hand.

In this exercise, we will focus on only the first, second and third fingers of the fretting hand and ignore the pinky for now. This will keep you focused on the fingers that you will need most when learning your first guitar chords.

Check out the video below to learn the guitar finger dexterity exercise. The PDF file that goes with this video is found in the course workbook.
