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.
