Guitar Drills to make your finger go faster

Guitar chops are tough to play. There are a variety of reasons why your fingers may slow down or your technique may become sloppy. But still, it won’t be any excuse if your sloppiness is seen in front of your fans. Let us look at some drills that will ensure you play your best and impress everyone.Four Finger Drill

Four Finger Drill

This is the simplest and the most efficient training. It not only increases the speed and endurance of your fingers but also gives them separation. Be sure to use alternate picking to quicken your right hand. You can take the drill up to the twelfth fret and come back down. For challenging yourself, you can ascend strings while descending frets and descend strings while ascending. Make this drill the backbone of your practice routine.

Three Finger Drill

If your fingers are not sore yet, you can try the Three Finger Drill. It is just the same as the above, except that you do it with three fingers instead of four. Use both variants of the drill like 1-2-4 and 1-3-4 patterns. A few repetitions will leave your hands in pain. The pain will subside and then continue with this practice for some more time.

Three Fingers Pull-Offs and Hammer Ons

If you got pass the previous lesson, then we guarantee you won’t be able to complete the rest. The Pull-Offs and Hammer-On Drill uses the same fingerings as the previous drills. Go from the first fret up till the twelfth and back, using 1-2-4 and 1-3-4. Play each note clearly as possible. It might take some time to pick up speed, and when you do, mix the ascending and descending drills the same way as the previous exercise.

Five String Arpeggio Drill

By the time you reach this tip, your fingers are getting back into shape. Given in the image below, try any of these three Arpeggios. Make sure you use alternative picking and sweep as well.

Harmonized Five-String Arpeggio Drill

This is the ultimate test. Give the harmonized D major scale a shot of your arpeggios. You will feel better as your fingers slide the fretboard. Metal soloists frequently use this type of harmonization, but it's also prevalent in bluegrass, jazz, and rock players.
If you can get this drill into your fingers, then it'll start coming out in your playing. Your ear will know the sound it wants, and your fingers won't need to hunt for it anymore. Get this drill down, and you'll officially be in the right shape to blow minds and melt faces.
