    Re: I Hate Playing Chords

    Thanks, Drew. I'll consider this, although, I feel my problem is mostly hand position. That might be difficult to see online.

    Re: I Hate Playing Chords

    Because, John, I feel after 5 years of playing, I should have advanced beyond 2 finger chords. In my area I would say 3 finger vs 2 finger chords separate the men from the boys, so to speak.

    I Hate Playing Chords

    "Hate" is a really strong word, but it describes my state of mind when practicing chords. I rarely have the opportunity to play with others, so, mostly, I play melody from the written music. I...
