Example3 pivoting the fretting hand arm
Carlos shows how important it is to ‘pivot’ the fretting hand arm when switching from one type of chord shape to another. He explains that rather than ‘fishing’ around with individual fingers the actual arm position can help find the right angle for the fingers. This exercise uses a diagonal shape across the top four strings and then mirrors that shape the opposite way, creating the need for an opposing arm position. He continues this switching of one shape to another all the way up the fretboard and shows clearly on the video what the arm is doing.
