Son of the Return of the Crab

Here are three short animated videos illustrating each set (four variations per set) of "The Crab" finger exercise variations.

Please see previous post on this topic here which provides a brief explanation of this warmup and includes a PDF of the twelve patterns (albeit in starting on the third fret whereas the animations here show the second fret as a starting point).

Set 2 here

Set 3 here

Each of the exercises are, in and of themselves, painfully tedious to play and, frankly, the corresponding videos are at least as painful to watch. However, they might serve to expedite the learning of and, ultimately, mastery over the most difficult of these studies. It would be no small feat to be able to play through the twelve exercises in the three minute total of these videos.

note: in .MOV format. looping is encouraged.
