I started using 3 fingers for plucking, a few months ago. It helped me a lot and I'm loving it but before long I hit a little problem. 3 fingers is awesome for going downwards on notes, So lets say, frets 12-10-9, Left Hand P--M--I Right Hand R--M--I fingers: R-M-I (ring middle Index Pinky) But, for going up, it doesn't work so well If I do: 9-10-12 Left Hand I--M--P Right Hand R--M--I I can't play that on anything higher than like... 50 bpm. It's like my brain won't allow me. This is the same problem than trying to turn your ankle clockwise while turning your wrist counter clockwise. So at this point I decided to practice going fast with I-M-R (which, for some reason, is alot harder than R-M-I) I was wondering what you guys did? Did you practice I-M-R or did you force you brain to accept the mismatch finger conundrum?
