  • Quick question to y’all folks:
    When playing a sequence of notes quickly in 5 adjacent frets (imagine like 7-6-5-4-3 any string), how do you end up fingering them? Which finger slides over?

    For me I go with what ever strong finger is closest. 7-6-5-4-3 I'd go with my index finger to land on 3. 3-4-5-6-7 I'd either slide into it with my pinky or if I need/want to bend I'll use my ring finger. I can 1/2 bend part of the time with my pinky but I'm more consistent with my ring finger.

    You may also do a chromatic substitute, for example, in Beast and the Harlot, that'd be good too.

    If it was all on one string, I'd use index finger but you could technically slide with any finger 🤟
    I can’t practice much right now due to a recent injury, but that did give me a lot of time to reflect on my guitar journey. It makes me laugh to think back to once upon a time when I had problems fingering the G chord shape and my fingers felt like they were gonna be split apart fingering the D chord shape. It feels so cool that when I randomly looked up how to play Crimson Day (love the intro) I recognize all the arpeggios instead of just placing my finger on the indicated fret and string blindly... all from a free school! But more crazy is I joined because it’s free, then ended up paying to upgrade my account because this school gave me so much more than I had expected. Just some random reflections after some radio silence... Also, be careful with kitchen knives lol :ROFLMAO:
    About a week of total stagnation in progress as I followed the lessons and hit the CAGED system. Partially because of how complex it seemed and the fact that I had worked over a week straight of evening shifts and not getting to my guitar until past midnight (I reserved the time before work for drumming practice and running - when it was socially acceptable to do so 😁).l
    I actually had to turn away from those lesson sets out of frustration and brain mushiness, flip a few pages back and just play some random chords or try out some easier songs to keep my fingers moving. One week later I come back at it and it all makes sense and it was never that complicated. Damn 😂
    Now I just need to practice it and apply it in a more practical way!
