Sometimes when I get in traffic my finger is immediately warmed up.

But guitar playing warm up is 10-15 minutes usually. I do the horrible (awful) exercises that I learned from a bass player named Stu Hamm. Don’t look them up. They are horrible. Been doing them for a very long time.

I used to warm up for 2 hrs prior to performing and or rehearsal , once I got to that point I did not want to stop and I very rarely made mistakes and could play for hours , I hated 2 hr rehearsals I one time drove 1 hr to play 2 hrs then drive home for an hour , that sucked huge

Last year or so my carpal-thritis has gotten to the point that I just hope to get enough feeling in my hands that I can tell when I have dropped my pick.
Not kidding.
