I'm trying to improve my mobility in my fretting (left) hand. I have small hands to begin with, and I always have trouble using more then just 2 fingers to move between frets. My wrist, index and middle fingers seem to do all the work, while my ring and pinky are just sitting there. I'm also trying to improve strength in my ring and pinky, because since I don't use them much (pinky not at all) I can't get them to hold a string down with enough force the way i'd like. I've gotten by for a long time like this. But lately the strain is getting to my wrist and first 2 fingers, and I feel that I need to get all of my fingers in the mix to reduce this. Plus I think it will help me play faster songs alot better. I've been practicing using my ring finger more, and I can get by with it okay, it's just training myself to use it is the hard part. I always go back to my first 2 fingers when playing. Also, I notice (and maybe this is just human nature) but when I have my index finger on a fret and bring up my ring finger my ring finger tends to bend in towards the index, I can barely get them a frets width apart, if it's possible i'd like to get more "stretch" out of my ring finger. Anyone have any advice they can give? Any exercises I can do away from the bass (or with it) to work on this? Thanks.
