    I was messing around with a blues scale and i found an exercise that will help conditon your hand to use all 4 fingers. Play it back and forth until you can do it real fast.

    With your pointer finger as finger 1 and your pinky as finger 4, the number of the tab is the same as the number of the finger you should use.
