Asked by tyler webb on 1999-12-26
i am a proficient player not a speller so dont laugh at me...............i was wondering if there was somthing that i could put on the fret board to make my fingers faster

There's not much you can do to make your fingers move faster except for lots of pratice. If you want your fingers to slide better, there is a spray called Finger Ease that can be put on your fretboard that is sort of oily. It might help though.

Scientific evidence shows that stronger muscles have quicker response times. If you want to improve your speed, you might try to improve your grip (buy handgrips).

Want speed? Buy handgrips. Stronger muscles have quicker reflexes.

The answer is yeah... 1. get your axe setup by a pro... 2. use ernie ball 'super slinkys' ( 9-42's ) they stay crystal clean, providing u use some: 3. 'GHS FAST FRET' - cleans fret board and strings and isnt too oily... 4. use the lightbulb trick (above) 5. Practice, Practice, and more practice - play 'til tour finger ache...

i think the only way that makes your fingers faster is practicing alot ,and it takes alot of effort and time.

to pratice is the best thing.you have to bring your brain and your fingers in harmony thats a kind of meditation.but better try to bring feeling in your guitar play it sounds much better than a fast machine.

take your fingers and sort of climb your way up and down your axe on all the chords hitting random notes on purpose (who knows might turn into a cool riff).

Answer posted by Unknown on 2003-02-24
I recommend that you melt down soft skin from your fingertips by putting your fingers in hot water after you practice. Now don’t burning your self, the water should be hot enough to be able to stand it until it cools down but not boiling!!

u r all right about setup and practice but my secret is a light coating of crazy glue on the tips - but be fukken careful during application

Well, I suggest that you pratice, pratice pull offs, hammer downs, everything. Heres a little something to pratice on to help you. Go e---------6-5-6-5-------------- b---------6-5-6-5-------------- g---------6-5-6-5-------------- d---------6-5-6-5-------------- a---------6-5-6-5-------------- e---------6-5-6-5-------------- As fast as you can go. Pratice it to prefection. Once you have it down perfectly, try all of the techniques above and what you know. Have fun with it.

e-----6-5-6-5 b-----6-5-6-5 d-----6-5-6-5 g-----6-5-6-5 d-----6-5-6-5 a-----6-5-6-5 e-----6-5-6-5 And if it doesnt work... it goes 6565 all across the fret board. Light to deep.
