Here is one that I have been using. I think it is working, and it works as a great way to warm up. If you want more help, just search this site.

You ever notice that when you truly know where you are going next on the guitar, things become almost automatic? What I like to do is always think of the next chord while playing the current one. Let's say you have a simple progression of I-IV-V in "G" (G - C - D) and the chords change on each new measure (in 4/4 time) like so:

[FONT=Courier New]
G------C------D
1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 [/FONT]

Now, if you think about it *when* you have to switch on the 1st beat of each measure, you'll always be late. Instead, I like to "mentally" position my fingers on the third beat of the prior measure.

Just my $0.02 :-)

I thing it does help when you think about when the chord is going to be played instead of thinking about when you need to change your fingering. I totaly agree that your fingers almost naturally change when you concentrate on when the next chord is to be played.

Just keep playing them over and over. Try differnt patterns too, you'll get faster in time.
Practice 8 hours a day and God Bless you.
