Typing Fingers & Keyboard Positions

Start with your fingers on the Home Row (Row 3) with your index fingers over F & J.

If you have been practising regularly, you will start to notice that you are naturally reaching for the correct keys. We are going to extend this to keys on Row 2.

Reaching up, and using fingers L2, R2, R3, the fingers-to-key positions are shown below. Familiarise yourself with the keys and finger required before starting.

R T Y U I
L2 L2 R2 R2 R3

As a guide to where you are currently are, always return to the Home Row & Keys F & J when you are not typing.
