Right Hand Warm Up #2
Warm Up #2 will help develop the independence of your index and middle fingers. This is a three line continuous exercise but each line can be practiced separately. The first line emphasizes the 1st and 3rd strings and the second line, the 1st and 2nd. The last line is an alternation of both string pairs.
On the beginning of “Foggy Mountain Breakdown,” Earl Scruggs would bring his thumb down on the second string in a 2121 sequence instead of using just his index and middle fingers whereas Doug Dillard would use his index and middle fingers only on the same sequence.
