Topic: Barre chords - eurika moment...
I may be dummer than the average bear -- wouldn't be a surprise, but...
I just discovered something that has made a difference for me.
I have been pinching the barred index finger and thumb to hold the chord with limited success. *sigh* and it just doesn't work and I think I see CTS in the near future.
Then I read an email from Paul Kleff [email@example.com] on how to stop avoiding barre chords and I think I found something that works.
It ain't about the vice grip on the neck... The trick is to set the thumb down the fret board (or even up for come chords) and use the leverage from twisting the wrist. A very different approach but it made a difference to me.
Give it a whirl.
