Hey guys...
This is what I came up with decades ago when I loved to just play the guitar...took one to work and played during all breaks or lunch, etc., just any chance I got I would play the guitar. I was so crazy about playing guitar I made up these finger exercises to improve strength, agility, etc.

Well I gradually seemed to have less and less time for guitar, or any music, and at the same time began getting myself other types of instruments, but still, once in a while continue on with these finger exercises when I can find the time...they help with fiddle or whatever you play.

Not saying Groundhogpeggy exercises are the best, just saying here's what I made up with as a young groundhog and anyone can do them or make up some to suit themselves, but they have seemed to help me out quite a bit over the years, decades, and multitudes of instruments in my life.

Thanks Peggy.

Thanks again.
