How can I make my pinky and ring finger move independently of each other?
Ok so I'm a bass guitar player and I have trouble with my ring finger. It always needs to be buddy buddy with another finger, and I just can't put much pressure on a fret without my pinky or middle finger doing the same motion. It really gets in my way! Are there any exersises that I can do to make it independant?

Maybe try 'Finger Fitness' --
Or try Baoding balls. They're not as easy as these videos makes them appear.
Especially in reverse!
