Would be better if there were sound clips and a pdf of the tabs.

no video = no interest
about like reading the transcript of a speech vs hearing it being well delivered by a dynamic speaker.

@ Ragnarok7. First use which ever is comfortable. My suggestion is to use all four one at a time. What I mean is do the whole ex with index finger, then with middle, then ring, then pinky. Also suggest using alternate configurations to help build dexterity. i.e. use 1st finger on 3rd fret 2nd on 4th fret 3rd on 7th fret 4th on 8th. Another great dexterity ex is to start with pinky on 1st note, ring on 2nd note, middle on 3rd note and index on 4th note etc... Get familiar with the pattern first then use these or any configuration you can think of. Best of luck.

Is there a video for this lesson? I suck at reading notes and tab.

Which fretting fingers would you use for Figure 1? 1 and 2 over and over?

I'm with Ciscometal! I think I still have somewhere that 20 years old article. Problem is that 20 years flew in my life and I never did any of those exercies! lol

It's not too late to start working on these! Thanks for bringing this back!
