Does your fretting ever feel awkward, inaccurate and sound noisy and sloppy?

It might have a lot to do with the part of the finger you’re using to fret the strings.

A lot of people use the finger print to fret strings, this area of the finger is quite large and awkward and doesn’t always produce the cleanest or most accurate playing.

The finger print can be used for double stops and barring but for single notes your best bet is the finger tip.

Your finger tips are a smaller, more precise part of the finger that can produce much more accurate playing.

The best way to get your finger tips to access the strings is to curve the knuckles and distal joints of your fretting hand.

Your finger knuckles are the bend in the middle of the finger, the distal joint is the bend just down from the fingernail.
