# Blog - One Finger Per Fret Permutations

Hopefully you will now be feeling comfortable with the One Finger Per Fret Exercise so the next step is to start adding in 'permutations'.

Rather than simply moving your fingers in 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th sequence we can now begin changing the order, for example 4th 1st, 2nd & 3rd . This allows you to develop any potential weakness among your fingers and will increase independence and finger strength, as well as add interest to the exercise.

There are hundreds of different permutations to work with, focus on practicing the permutations that feel most awkward. You can begin to change permutations on each new string to really increase your technique!

Remember that practicing with a metronome will help improve your sense of timing and accuracy - speed isn't your aim, rather accuracy between your picking and fretting hands to produce a clear defined note.

Timing + Accuracy = Speed
