Three Essential Stretches
It’s extremely important to make sure you warm up your hands and arms before playing your guitar, especially when you’re just starting out. The last thing you want to do is become discouraged about practicing because your fingers and hands are sore. These exercises only take a few seconds to do, so no excuses! Be sure to perform these stretches before and after you play your guitar.
The Scissor Stretch: Separate each pair of with the opposite hand’s index and middle fingers, using them just like a pair of opening scissors to wedge between and stretch the tendons.
The Finger Pull-Back: Straighten the arm with the fingers getting stretched while pulling those top four fingers back with the opposite hand until you feel a nice stretch.
Wrist Rolls: Make two fists, then rotate your left wrist clockwise and your right wrist counterclockwise ten times simultaneously. Then switch directions.
