hey guys out there how r u all???.....yaar actually i bought a guitar coz i like guitaring alot....its an accoutic one and is of quite fine kwality ibought it for 5500 and its of a chinese brand named kapok.....yaar now the problem is that when i try to play a few chords simple ones i can play only a few coz i unwillingly kinda touch other strings whilst pressing the ones which need to be pressed and thus the strings dont sound properly neither do the chords as a result and after a lil time my fingers start aching.....i read a few articles on teh net one explaining the baseball and classicla position of the hand on the fret and the neck....but even by lowering my thumb to the centre at the back of the neck i sometimes find it tuff to play certain chords in which i cannot press the strings properly cause my fingers are constantly interfering wid other strings ......this is very irritating.....i wanna know is this normal for beginners coz i do have alot of patience but atleast sum1 tell me its normal takey mein himmat na haroooon yaar coz i was wondering keh kaheen meir fingers mein tau koi problem naheen hau sakta.....i mean even if it takes 2 yrs to practise to be able to play a few songs i can do that but its just that i wanna know if my guitar is ok in terms of its setup and that wats hapenning is just wat happens to every beginner........
i'd like jibran aslam to plz reply to this query and gimme some useful tips if he can and even if theres another guitarist who's been playing for some time yaar aapki tips will be more than welcome....
looking forward to ur replies

try practicing chords by placing ur fingers..on a chord...and the remove ur fingers and bring em bak....its not necessary 4 em to be bak at the same way is 2 keep playing even if one finger isnt in the right place...dont stop just correct it as soon as possible....keep tryin this worked for me.........

the main prob which i guess many people face is the tuning..then how to place one's fingers....last but not the least pull off and hammer on..they come later but they are the main points which are coming in my mind rite now...phir major minor chords....keep on trying you will do it..:)

Hashriani....yup thats eGGsactly what i do......ive improved...but still the open chords bug me a lot......Bar chords Aint a prob now....

G-man = Yaar the Cyberfret guy says The opposite....he says that I should try to put all o em at the same time.......????........And ive started this Exercise ....ive improved...
guitarman Posted - 27 June 2004 : 7:47:15 PM
fangus..u shud make finger patterns like..when switching frum e maj to g maj. dont even shake the index finger while switching and secondly when u switch chords ,in start dont just go on puting all ur finger on the chord..go on smoothly like 1st put ur index finger then ur middle finger then the 3 rd finger than the pinky.this will create strength in ur fingers and u can put all ur fingers on the chord at the same time
Hashriani Posted - 23 June 2004 : 04:34:19 AM
switching from one chord to another?
yeah thats tricky...
one way to many...just play around and play what you feel easy in...
Fangs Posted - 20 June 2004 : 3:16:50 PM
hi ppl............Yeah i bought a guitar last month,its Yamaha f-310 tbs acoustic guitar the hang of the chords n tabs......But the main prob really is Switchin............
ive heard that there R diff Wayz 2 switch........But donno nethin abt em.............
would def. appreciate sum help!
Hashriani Posted - 04 June 2004 : 04:19:42 AM
first congrats on buying a guitar...join the band wagon suggest you learn to hit one single not properly at a time signified as " tin tin tin" so that you get in the flow..then go to first barre second then the scale runs and chord apreggios and the style of picking..its a deep sea...and yes the most imp thing to do is play what you want to as the great Steve Morse said in one of his lessons" when you pick the guita rplay something that you really like so you look forward to picking it up again" and yes once you get the into the habit practise...if fingers hurt and start again always helps to nurture and refine your playing
goodluck :)
