Finger Switch

Posted by Northl on Sunday, December 3, 2017

Long story short, today I began a finger switch from index to middle. It is an experiment to see if after a trial it works better or if the other does. It is also an experiment to make my brain to do some more learning using the new finger. I wonder if it may assist in getting these songs memorized. I can concentrate on the change instead of the songs ...

I'm a middle finger user, and I nearly crushed it one day in a door. A switch was almost forced on me, I think it's wise to have the option of either or. I think I will trial my index in the new year.

It makes our brains make new pathways and adapt to change, options are good.

Creating new neural pathways are awesom

Way to go Northl!

Is this the fingering for Clawhammer?

Starting back up after nearly a month off it first felt best with original finger but then I switched again and think I will stick with middle finger from now on. The fingers seem to flow the best that way.
