Learning guitar requires muscles in your hands that you’ve never used before. It makes sense to use dedicated “warm ups” to improve your hand strength and finger independence.
Play this warm up (round in a circle) for 3-5 minutes with every practice. You will start to feel the benefit after 7 days.
It’s important to play each note clearly (no buzzing or dead sounding strings.)
When pressing down the strings use only enough pressure to sound the note. It’s common for beginners to over press the strings.
For an extra level of skill play this warm up to 60 BPM using a metronome.
