Okay so I'm sitting in class and I'm bored out of my mind. I have that urge to play guitar very badly. What can I during class when I have no guitar handy to practice. ?
What I've tried:
1. using my arm as the neck
2. finger exercises on my arm (like 1234 with the beat on one... and then i'll do on two.. etc.)
3. trying to work on finger independence. Lifting one finger at a time without moving the others.
4. Trying to memorize parts of theory where you have to memorize.

I'd like to try more stuff... any suggestions?

You can mute the strings with a rubber band according to one of the testimonials on the site. Whatcha think?

I actually have one of these and it is very good for exercising the picking hand, unfortunately I am to fat for the belt that came with it so I have to hould it with my left hand while I torture my right hand and wrist muscles.

If I get one of those and use it in combination with the gripmaster ( exerciser for the left hand ) I have, IŽll look like someone who has "virtual reality"-equipment...
