How many of you have ever sat there and wished you could walk faster?
How many of you would like to have better finger control?

Well, I was doing my drum rudiments the other day when an idea popped into my head. I should do these with my fingers!
So, I've started doing paradiddles, doubles, and other excersizes with my fingers to gain more control and eventually more speed with my fingers. Here's some excersizes for you to do.

Doesn't matter the order but pick one finger to be R and the other L.

Paradiddles

R L R R L R L L R L R R L R L L
or
R L L R L R R L R L L R L R R L

Doubles
R R L L R R L L R R L L R R L L
or
L L R R L L R R L L R R L L R R

Try those for about 5 minutes straight each hand everyday and you'll actually see a great change. If you have to start of slow and controlled and the speed will come.

Let me know how it goes for those of you who try.

another thing that works (for me) is to play bass. finger picking builds up your strength really easy. but its harder to do it with your offhand without a lot of practice.

i know that there was an APG gear section on finger weights once. my friend and i actually thought of taking old tire balancing weights and taping them to our fingers.
