try this guitar exercise
i just invented this little exercise to help your fretting fingers. its hard to explain, but i'll try.
On the low E string, put your first finger on the first fret, hi the low e string, them put your 2nd finger on the 2nd fret and hit the low e string, then put your first finger on the 2nd fret and hit the low e string. repeat the same thing (only using your first 2 fingers) till the 12th fret. and repeat for all fingers on all strings. i hope this was clear enough, its kinda fun.
Some people don't like to stop and take a look at the big picture, i make them stop, and i make them look.
