The guitar-finger independence exercises shown in the video are played at the 5th fret on guitar with fingers initially anchored on the 3rd string at the 5th position. By moving one or two fingers in turn while keeping other fingers held down, this exercise offers a good challenge to players of ANY level.

In fact, these are part of Scott Tennant’s warm up routine! Try for yourself.
