it might help to buy one of these: Planet Waves Varigrip (note - that's an affiliate link and i make like 45 cents if you buy it through there )

i have one on my desk and have gotten a ton of use out of it. even then, my pinky is still weak when compared to my other fingers. Also, remember that using hammer-ons with sweeps is somewhat advanced anyways, so be patient and it will come.

Thanks for all your advices, guys! I'll try out all them By the way, 80H, that gadget seems interesting, I didn't knew that could exist that kind of stuff! hahaha very useful I'll look for it I hope you don't mind, but I prefer to buy it here in Spain, it would be more cheap than ask for one from US (you know, custom taxes and shipping costs from so far away...) but anyway thanks for the info, I'll buy one for sure!

Thanks again, dudes! Glad to read you again
