Finger tips

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by Bluez Dawg, Jan 24, 2006.

  1. I just learned to play on my finger tips "left hand fretted hand", and it sounds so much better then how I was doing it before.

    Who all here uses they're finger tips?

    When I teach students that is usually one of the first things that I have to teach/correct. The other is usually the placement of your thumb on the fretting hand.

    Using your tips will not only help you to play more cleanly, but it requires less strength. There are times when I intentionally use the pad of a finger, but its only in very prescribed circumstances.
