Hello everyone I have guiliani right hand studies that I practiced for a while. I am unable to figure out which excercise should I practice for A & M finger infependence. It sounds very thin compared to I & M finger.
Please hlep me
This is a common issue, often related to right hand balance and finger independence. You can use any right hand exercises (ie Guiliani, Carlevaro, Boudonis, etc) and even better if you work on a variety of patterns. Initially play on open strings, later add a stationary left hand chord part, adding the left hand chord changes last.
One idea is to take turns accenting each finger of the pattern. If the pattern is P I M A, play P
I M A, accenting P for a repeated number of repetitions, until it begins to feel automatic. Then go on, following the same procedure, accenting I, then M, then A. This helps to develop a sense of balance and finger independence. Be aware of your overall wrist and right hand position. Difficulties with specific fingers can indicate a need to make adjustments at this level. Examine your overall sitting position, position of the guitar and take note of tension that you feel throughout your body. Do a mental check-in working through all body parts from head to toe or from toe to head (either way is fine).
Another idea is to place P I M A on the strings needed for the arpeggio exercise. Keeping I, M, A on the strings, pluck only P. Continue through the pattern: keeping P, M, A on the strings, pluck only I; keeping P, I, A on the strings pluck only M and keeping P, I M on the strings pluck only A. This helps develop finger independence.
Wishing you best in your technical development! It is a lot of work but well worth it!
So much music, so little time.
