For the past few months I've found myself gravitating toward using the 1-2-4 technique in the lower frets, all the while fighting that gnawing feeling that I might be taking the easy way out or in some way hampering my future growth. Most of the instruction materials that I've used have really stressed utilizing the one-finger-per-fret technique all over the fretboard when physically possible. I saw this video on youtube and thought the presenter gave some sound reasons for using both fretting techniques. How about you? Are you a one-finger-per-fret-all-the-way person or do you switch it up as you see fit?
