Thumb exercise 2

This is the second group of exercise videos to help develop proper thumb technique. There are three exercises, each with it’s own video, as well as the tablature below. This set of exercises is more advanced than the first set, so go to “Thumb excercise 1″ in the “Exercises” section and start with those if you are new to playing with your thumb.

Exercise 7

Exercise 8

Exercise 9

Hints: You should first see the video lesson “Thumb technique” in the “Technique” section of this site before attempting to do any of these exercises. I suggest doing all these exercises in order. You must be able to do “Thumb exercise 1″ well before you do these exercises because it includes more difficult freestroke parts. Don’t try to do these exercises fast. Speed will come with time, just focus on correct form and always be aware of all your movements.
