  1. Hey, how ya doing?
    Justin here today.
  2. I'm gonna share with you
    an awesome little exercise

  3. called "Minimum Movement".

  4. It's a small idea with big consequences, this one.
  5. Uh, we're gonna be using the G major scale.
  6. Doesn't really matter what scale you use.
  7. This is just a good one because
    it's using all of your fingers.
  8. Um, but you could use
    another scale if you like.
  9. Um, and the idea here really, it's all just
    about learning to control your fingers.
  10. I'm gonna talk about it a little bit
    more after I've given you the close up
  11. and the proper example of it.
  12. But, uh, let's get to our close up
  13. and, uh, check out actually
    how to do this exercise.
  14. Let me start by playing
    you the G major scale
  15. the one way I most commonly see it
    if I ask a student to play me the scale.
  16. So, it might look something like this.
  17. 'playing'
  18. Okay? Now let me play it another way
  19. and see if you can spot the difference
  20. 'playing'
  21. Looks pretty different, doesn't it?
  22. 'playing'
  23. So the difference is
    that my fingers are under control.
  24. I call it "Flying Fingers" when
    people's fingers, you know
  25. particularly little fingers,
    for a lot of people they really
  26. want to fly right off the neck
    as soon as they finish playing the note.
  27. Whee! Off goes little finger.
  28. So, what you want to do with this exercise is
  29. play the G major scale really slowly
    and try not to let any finger move more
    than a millimeter or two from the fingerboard.
  30. Right? Doesn't sound like that difficult a thing
    but when you try it you're gonna find it is.
  31. So, first note. Now, let's just
    put the little finger down.
  32. There we go, now first finger's
    actually already kind of in place.
  33. Now second finger has just got
    to move over there, there we go.
  34. Little finger, now don't let it
    move up, there we go.
  35. First finger over now,
    and it's just really
  36. slowly trying to get the fingers
  37. cause you are gonna find
    I'm almost certain that
  38. some of the fingers
    want to lift right up off the fingerboard.
  39. Particularly like here,
    moving that third finger over.
  40. Little finger wants to go "Hey!"
  41. But you gotta try and keep
    it under control there.
  42. The whole way, especially
    here agian, that- th-
  43. could really feel my little finger
    wanting to lift up there.
  44. Wo- wait- actually, I let them
    all have a bit of a run there.
  45. So we're just really trying
    to get those fingers
  46. so they're hardly moving at all,
    and you really want to go slow with this.
  47. There's absolutely no point in trying to do it fast.
  48. And you're gonna find when you
    try and do this exercise yourself
  49. it's actually a lot more difficult than it looks.
  50. Oh, little finger just had a little bit of a wander as well.
  51. It's difficult! You know, especially there as well.
  52. When you're changing
    fingers behind little finger when it's already off.
  53. Like now, it wants to lift up,
    and you have to really
  54. concentrate to make sure
  55. oh, there it goes again
  56. You stay down,
    you little rumin.
  57. Again, it was jumping
    a little bit.
  58. But that's the exercise.
  59. So this exercise is all about
    controlling your fingers.
  60. The speed thing is really-really
    not important here
  61. It's not at all
  62. So doing it fast will
    just spoil the excercise
  63. And there'd be no point in doing it
  64. You really wanna be doing slow, careful,
    controlled movements
  65. And making sure that
    you're in control of all of your fingers
  66. All the time. Most people struggle
    with the little finger particularly
  67. The fact is that it'll just play
    and as soon as I finish playing the note
  68. it jumps right
    off the fingerboard
  69. and that's really normal
    but you'll just have to do it
  70. slowly enough to get it right.
    Okay, now I'm gonna move over
  71. to my 1st finger now, little finger
    you'll just stay there and just concentrate
  72. on that little finger, making sure
    it doesn't lift off.
  73. Concentrate 'n' concentrate
    and try, and you will find
  74. that you can control it!
    You can do it!
  75. Even if it feels like
    you can't originally,
  76. you can definitely
    control your fingers properly.
  77. You just have to practice doing it
    and learn how to make sure that
  78. there's no kinda instinctive
    muscle reactions thrown out
  79. by your brain while you're playing.
    You wanna be in control of
  80. every little movement that they make.
    Now, what you gonna find, it's really
  81. interesting is this has a big effect
    on your playing all over.
  82. Without having to practice individual
    things, so if you'd work on this
  83. using the G major scale, as
    I'm suggesting, you'll find that
  84. it's just naturally kind of infects
    your blues scale and the licks
  85. that you're playing and songs
    that you're working on.
  86. Your fingers will naturally be
    a lot more under control and
  87. you'll find them flying off a
    little bit more, if you do find it,
  88. particularly, for a, you know,
    well, a particular tune or
  89. a riff that you're learning when
    your fingers are flying about a bit,
  90. then, you might wanna spend
    little bit of time with that
  91. one riff, or that one lick,
    or whatever it is, that you're
  92. struggling with, but generally
    you're gonna find that this
  93. one exercise, 5 minutes a day
    this one, is a really big deal.
  94. It's a great thing to have
    in your practice routine.
  95. Good little warm-up thing as well,
    because it's not very strenous and
  96. not very fast, so you can just
    really get you know, get your brain
  97. into the zone there, so
    really, unbelievably great
  98. exercise is it. It was a
    real game-changer for me
  99. to, made a huge impact on my
    technique generally, so
  100. I hope it does the
    same for you.
  101. See you for plenty more
    lessons and songs very soon,
  102. You take care of yourselves!
    Bye-bye!
