This chromatic finger warm-up will exercise all fingers of your fretboard hand and help you gain independent control of each finger.  Practice on the first four frets on each strings. The exercise creates a Chromatic scale because it moves up and down by half-steps.  Keep the fingers curved and close to the fretboard.  Only move the fingers as much as is necessary.  Use a metronome and try to play accurately with the pulse.

Practice along with this video until you can do it with out mistakes.  Then practice on your own with the metronome at 70, 80, and 90 beats per minute.
