Just thought I’d reopen this topic as the last post was a year ago.
I’m having problems with flying fingers when playing scales. I don’t have a problem with chords, my fingers stay pretty close to the fretboard with minimum movement. However, as soon as I play for example a G major scale, my fingers take on a life of their own. Although I can play the scale pattern, I’m aware that my fingers are all over the place!
I’ve read through all the previous posts and am going to revisit Justin’s finger stretch exercise lesson and his minimum movement exercise lesson.
I was just wondering why it’s the scales that cause my fingers to ‘fly’ and not the chord changes.
