OK, I've decided to advance to the next level from advance beginner and attempt intermediate songs. So I'm tackling "Jerusalem Ridge" from Monroe Instrumentals-25 Bill Monroe Favorites.
I am having problems with the pinky slides in the 3rd part, especially with a double stop. I practice Aonzo scales daily and have a pretty strong pinky finger at the 7th fret for a single note but sliding seems to take an even stronger motion.
How to you train your pinky to slide for a double stop and not mute the string below? The tab requires it done on the D or A string (depending on the note played) at the 7th fret. Are there any exercises for this?
