Re: squeek

One little tip I was once shown helps with this. If the guitarist learns to make most of the basic chord shapes without the index finger (using the middle, ring, and pinky fingers instead), the index can then be used to dampen between chord changes, and also be ready to barre when needed. This requires training the pinky a bit, but the results work quite well.

Re: squeek

My pinky is almost useless. I'm working on it, though.

Someday we'll win this thing...
