So
let's talk about the left hand warm ups.
And just like anything else, warming up is
good to get you stretched out and
ready to go.
So after a little shake out, I put first
position.
The chromatic exercise is always good cuz
you have all the notes under your finger.
[MUSIC]
And again,
we've talked about always start slowly so
you can build up to the faster speeds.
Here's another left hand warm up that I
use just to keep my fingers strong.
And it, it incorporates the different
combinations of the fingers.
It's first, it's your first and second.
Then, it goes to the first and third.
First and fourth.
And
then it goes from the second to the third,
second to the fourth,
and then the third and fourth fingers, and
it goes like this.
[MUSIC]
First and third.
[MUSIC]
First and four.
[MUSIC]
Second and third.
[MUSIC]
Second and fourth.
[MUSIC]
Third and fourth.
[MUSIC]
And
what you can really feel in the third and
fourth fingers,
because a lot of people don't use their
pinky finger, but that.
[MUSIC]
And
then once you do that you just start, and,
and make your way up the neck.
[MUSIC]
And, and the other exercise.
[MUSIC]
And I can tell just doing that,
it's getting my hand warm and a little bit
tired.
So, mission accomplished.
