Independence Exercise 2

Independence Exercise 2

The first exercise here develops the independence of the 2nd and 4th fingers against the 1st and 3rd fingers.

The second exercise encourages the independence of the 1st and 2nd fingers and is useful for helping the release of the lower part of the hand frame.

The reason for placing fingers on neighbouring strings, rather than all on the same string, is to open out the hand.

There are many independence exercises where the 1st finger is held down, so it's good to develop your own exercises featuring lifting the 1st finger, as in the second exercise shown here.
