Left Hand Finger Placement

So often I see students of mine who blame their gear for their own technique problems.

One of the most common technique problems these students are facing is left hand finger placement.

The Problem - They aim for the center of the fret when placing their fingers on the fretboard.

The Solution - Aim just behind the fret.

Applying this one seemingly insignificant tip to your playing will...

  • Eliminate weak or buzzy notes
  • Reduce the amount of left hand pressure needed to cleanly fret a note, which will...
  • Correct intonation problems caused by squeezing the neck too hard
  • Extend the life of your frets

    I don't know of a quicker and easier way to instantly improve your left hand technique. And the results are easy to hear!
