GUEST,Neil Lowe Fingers, Hitting Frets, & Not Looking (55* d) RE: Fingers, Hitting Frets, & Not Looking 15 Mar 00


Kevin,

Nope...short stubby fingers. But I get what you're saying.

I'm sitting here now, box in hand, fretboard staring at me with all the mistakes there just waiting to be made. I put my fingers on the board and strum a C7, no problem. Not one of the easiest chords for me to make (I don't like it all that much and don't play it very often), but not difficult either. I move six frets up and try the same fingering: fumble fumble. And even though the frets are a little closer up here, it doesn't look like my fingers had to move that much closer together. Maybe it's a horizontal thing. *BG*

Neil
