Finger Exercise for Guitar Beginners – Lesson 1

If you are beginner then the most difficult task for you is to place finger on particular note or string or fret.

Here I’m giving you the 1st lesson which I give to my friends and students on the 1st day in guitar practice. It’s one of the basic exercises for your fingers.

If you do it perfectly then it will be a good start for you.

At initially you will find it boring, but if you stick to it, you gonna rewarded.

Now, here we start.

Use finger with respect to the fret i.e.

1st finger (Index Finger) on 1st fret

2nd finger (middle Finger) on 2nd fret

3rd finger (ring Finger) on 3rd fret

STEP 1:

 E|-3-2-1-0————————————————————-

B|————3-2-1-0————————————————-

G|————————-3-2-1-0————————————-

D|————————————-3-2-1-0————————-

A|————————————————-3-2-1-0————-

E|————————————————————-3-2-1-0-

 

STEP 2:

E|-0-1-2-3————————————————————-

B|————0-1-2-3————————————————-

G|————————-0-1-2-3————————————-

D|————————————-0-1-2-3————————-

A|————————————————-0-1-2-3————-

E|————————————————————-0-1-2-3-

 

STEP 3:

E|-3-2-1-0-1-2-3————————————————————————————————-

B|——————–3-2-1-0-1-2-3——————————————————————————

G|—————————————3-2-1-0-1-2-3———————————————————–

D|———————————————————-3-2-1-0-1-2-3—————————————–

A|—————————————————————————–3-2-1-0-1-2-3———————-

E|————————————————————————————————–3-2-1-0-1-2-3-

-: Tips :-

  • 0 mean open string that mean play string without placing your finger on fret.
  • Try to play in same interval. If possible use metronome application (mobile, PC) or just tap your foot in same interval.

      “dash” means nothing. arey bhai log samjha karo agar dash nahi diya to sab numbers ki khichadi ho jaegi. fir usko dekh kar bajane mein mushkil ho jaega. dash ko ignore karo.

    In beginners Lesson1 -> step1:
    E|-3-2-1-0—————————–
    B|——–3-2-1-0———————-

    To reading above is
    on E – fret3(with 3rd fingure)-fret2(with 2nd fingure)-fret1(with 1st fingure)-Open(without pressing any finger)
    on B – fret3(with 3rd fingure)-fret2(with 2nd fingure)-fret1(with 1st fingure)-Open(without pressing any finger)

    Please confirm if i am reading this correctly or correct me if there is any mistake.
