TIP OF THE WEEK
UNDERSTANDING: HOW THE FINGERS LEARN
Your fingers have this amazing ability, as does every muscle in your body, to "remember" anything they do. We all use this ability of the muscles in different ways in various things we do in life.
The person practicing performs various movements with the fingers, directed to a certain result. If the movements were done slowly and accurately, with no extra tension is the muscles involved, the fingers would have no trouble reproducing them at a faster speed.

Why slowly?
Because that is the only way to have the mind control the fingers and make them do what is desired, and keep extra tension to a minimum, or eliminated entirely. Remember this: Whatever your fingers experience doing slowly, in a state of total relaxation, they will be able to do very quickly, provided they experience enough absolutely correct repetitions of that action. This is not some special secret thing only some people have or some people

Why slowly?
Because that is the only waxy to have the mind control the fingers and malt, them do what is desired, and &esp extra tension to a minimum, or eliminated entirely
This ability of the muscles and nervous system of our body to remember and repeat movements they have already experienced is the foundation of how we learn to play the guitar, or any instrument for that matter, and is called muscle memory.
It's important to realine that this is not some special secret thing only some people have or some people use. We all do it already, but you must understand it and respect it when you practice, in order to be able to practice effectively, that is, get results. The great players understand these things, and they practice like they understand them. You can too!
