Another exercise I do with my kids is what I call the four finger exercise. I start them up in the 9th-12th frets on the first string-1st finger on 9, 2nd on 10, 3rd on 11th, and 4th on 12th. All fingers down at first the pluck string and say 4, then lift so that only 3 fingers are down and say 3. Continue until only first finger is down. Then go down one fret and repeat all the way till the first four frets. Then I have them go 4-3-2-1-2-3-4 then go down one fret. This exercise makes them use their pinky. Most students do not like using their pinky’s.
