Typing Basics - Reaching Further
As you place your fingers on the home keys you have surely noticed a problem. There are 11 keys in the row, yet you are only using 8 fingers to type with. Well, that is actually not a problem at all. You see God has blessed our fingers with a wonderful thing that we like to call flexibility. Therefore we can solve our little dilemma by having certain fingers do double duty. In this lesson you will learn how to reach for the "g" and "h" key.
Let's dig in. Take the finger that you now have on the "f" key and use it to press the "g" key. Do this several times until the motion becomes fluid and natural. Next try the same with the finger you now have on the "j" key, using it to press the "h" key. Good Job! You are already well on your way to becoming an A+ typist. Now go ahead and try the three practice lines for lesson two. As before the link at the bottom of this page will take you to the "Exercises in typing" program. See you in Lesson 3.
