Your Pinky – Best Friend Or Worst Enemy?

Guitar can be a pretty frustrating instrument sometimes, but you experience the most frustration nearer the beginning of your stringy journey. You’ve got the tabs in front of you, you can see what you need to do, you can do most of it, and then – your goddamn pinky won’t do what you tell it to do.

This is probably because it’s just not strong enough yet – the spirit is willing, but the flesh is spongy and bruised. Until you get some gains on your wee boy, he’s just going to be in the way, and you’ll just hate him. In this guitar lesson video, I show you how to muscle up your tiniest finger so it can do what YOU want it to!

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
