From watching videos I've noticed that a lot of fast players have their fingers positioned a certain way and they just slide that finger position to different positions on the neck. I don't see this too much with blues players, mainly shredders. It looks like an economical way to position your fingers, but what do I know? Anyway, this is what I see. 1st finger - positioned anywhere on the neck 2nd finger - one step up from 1st finger 3rd finger - half step up form 2nd finger pinky - one step up from 3rd finger When I watch these certain players they just seem to slide this position effortlessly around. This is much different than the the players who mainly use only three fingers for fretting (omitting pink). I even see some players who use all four, but don't position them in this manner. Please explain this, because Iwould really like to understand and learn what is going on here. Thanks!
