Re: Pinky excersises!!!!

Spider scale on the 1st string start 12 fret and go ...12-11-10-9-bend/up.slide down one fret ..11-10-9-8-bend/up ( keep doing this down to the 1st fret) then go up ....1-2-3-4 bend/up.2-3-4-5 bend/up..

That should help..

Re: Pinky excersises!!!!

Keep practising your hammer ons/pull offs as well. Practise 3&4 ho/po over and over.

I never practised any bending with my pinkie it just came naturally through pinkie independence strength.
