Finger Position for Guitar

Finger Position for Guitar is a free lesson by Peter Vogl that will cover the placement and pressure for your left hand fingers on the guitar neck. We will first discuss how much pressure you need to use with your finger to produce a clean note. Next, Peter will show you where to place your finger in relation to a guitar fret to avoid buzzing or muted notes. The tips included in the video will help you play quickly and avoid muscle fatigue.

Important tips to remember about finger postion on the guitar neck

- You are trying to press the string down just far enough so that the string presses the fret you're trying to play. You do not need to press the string so far down that it's touching the wood on the neck.

- Place your fingers directly behind a fret when noting.
