Welcome to our Master Your Fingers Guitar Gym Course! This course targets four core practice elements: finger twisters, pentatonic scales, three and four string scales, and arpeggios. For each of these elements, we have created exercises and workouts so you can improve your speed, accuracy, synchronization, and overall guitar technique. At the end of each unit, we consolidate all the exercises into a challenging mega-workout, that you can play along with the tutor! Think of this course as a workout video for your guitar playing!

This course will provide you with all the finger twisting fun you'll ever need as an intermediate player!

Four key areas

The first unit focuses on crucial exercises that enhance finger independence, synchronization, and technique. Unit two dives into the world of pentatonic scales. This two note per string scale is an absolute must and we use this opportunity to master the shapes across the neck and really build up a more practical and usable set of exercises that would sound good in any solo. Then we explore three-note scale shapes, emphasizing** economy picking**. Lastly, unit four is dedicated to major and minor arpeggios, with sweep picking exercises. Each unit concludes with a thorough workout for continuous skill development, so you can return to this course whenever you need a technique or speed boost!
