Light Fingers

#1 Post by StrongBad » Tue May 06, 2003 3:57 pm

I heard on this one site that if you place your index and thumb on your "fret" fingers and slowly flutter them up and down and side to side, you can play a little faster and relaxed. well you hold the finger like you had a cut, but not rough, or like the top of a nailscrew. Go ahead and try it, I mean its not like it actually worked VERY well or any thing like that.

It makes you play a little faster and it makes you look a little cooler when you play. Oh yeah you should know what I am talking about because it is a guitar tech.

And here it is for those that don't feel like searching around for something when they don't understand what it really is that they are looking for:

I clicked. I read. I laughed.

Then I pointed and laughed. With my light finger, obviously.

He's right about the whole tension issue, but I'm not sure he has any idea what he's talking about.
