Hey guys... Since it's vacation here and I won't see my guitar tutor until over a week from now, I thought I'd ask you for your advice on the pinkie craze I suffer from.
My pinkie seems to jump up from the fretboard a lot (as in: it doesn't stay close enough to the strings for fast action). Someone got some tips or practises that'll keep my pinkie closer to the strings?
I notice that when I play alternate picking excersizes like:
E 1-2-3-4--------- and so on, and the John Petrucci sweep picking excersize, that my pinkie stays pretty close to the strings. But on any other practise or playing, it'll bend back like insane!
Any help will be appreciated, thanks!
