When i started playing guitar back before the interwebs I somehow picked up the message, either from a teacher or from a magazine that the most efficient way to finger when playing leads was "one finger per fret", by which i mean, for example, if you want to play a pentatonic scale shape, you're using your pinky for the 3 fret stretch on the low E and top B and E strings. I've gotten good at this, my pinky is useful, but i'm def not a shredder. Now that we have the magic of youtoob, i have been noticing in videos that a lot of really fast players seem to use their ring finger and mostly ignore the pinky, even for 3 fret stretches. This actually makes sense b/c the ring finger is much stronger. I'm thinking maybe i learned bad technique by using my pinky so much and I'd be faster if i retrained to use the ring finger even for big stretches. what do you guys do?
