Fingerstlye Guitar Lessons Part 1

Many times with both classical and fingerstyle guitar students I spend time with strength training their "weakest finger" on their right hand (left hand for the lefties)...the ring finger, also called the "a" finger.  I personally call it the retarded finger, it's perfectly capable, but just needs extra development to be as strong as the other fingers. Without extra attention and some type of finger strengthening study, a weak "a" finger can lead to timing issues while playing a piece oreven hand fatigue in the midst of playing. I wrote this little Etude to address the issue with the right hand for some of my beginner and intermediate students and also create a guide finger and movement challenge for the left hand.  Enjoy!
