How can I build the strength to play?

How to get stronger - My hands feel too weak :/

 

When you learn to write, it feels stupid.

Tips for building strength to play guitar

You shouldn't have to use too much power to press the string down.

  • However, especially with steel strings and chords fretting can be a tiring business.

  • Some fingers might also be weaker than others, but they'll all get stronger with practice.

  • You can also strengthen individual fingers and wrist muscles by squeezing a clothespin or the whole hand by squeezing a tennis ball.
