Complete workout to develop strength and endurance in your guitar playing

A football player doesn’t perform weight lifting and exercise drills on the field but these preliminary activities build the skill and strength he uses on the playing field. In the same way, the Dexterity Builders Series lays the groundwork to help you build better dexterity and strength. In addition, by mastering scale patterns up and down the neck you will become comfortable with the patterns and develop the ability to create music using scales. These are good exercises to work on quietly while watching TV to create "Finger Memory." Once mastered continue these exercises for a few minutes daily to maintain your dexterity level.
