I had a pretty interesting idea today, as I just finally got my class ring last night for high school and today I had auditions for regional jazz band, and as I was warming up this morning I noticed a change in my picking hand. I use three fingers and my ring finger was lacking the same speed that it usually supplies and I had a hard time figuring out why I wasn't playing as fast as usual. Then finally I realized, hey idiot, you've got a ring on. So, as I thought about this I came up with an idea. FINGER WEIGHTS. My question to you guys is whether they exist or not. Because fingers on a bassist are like arms on a baseball player, the more strength you have in them, the more you can do. Bad anology, but you get my point. Would this idea help anyone increase their finger strength and picking technique?
