    I don’t necessarily think there’s a problem with this. If it works for you- let it be!

    Yeah, Neil @nlsbjaol-com ;

    In time, you will gain more control and finger independence. In the meantime, try this exercise.

    Put your palms down on a flat surface with the fingers splayed. Then lift one finger at a time in any order. Do one hand at a time or both hands, it doesn’t matter. Eventually, as this becomes easier, do 2 fingers at a time, the alternate ones, index and ring, middle and pinky.

    Do this exercise briefly every day for a few weeks and you will notice a remarkable difference in your finger strength and independence.

    @nlsbjaol-com that happens to the best of us!! There’s a couple of wonderful courses here in TAC that help to address that fly-away fretting issue. Here’s the link to the 5-day pinky challenge. It’s under “My Routine” then “Skill Courses”, then “5 Day Challenges”. There’s another one in that section called “5-Day Finger Stretch” which is also a good one for flying fretting fingers. Hope this helps!!
