    Re: Guitar help


    OK, so the gut wrenching feeling of inadequacy and incompetence is normal, got it. My hands are not quite as limber as they once were and I do have early onset RA. It's difficult for me to bend certain knuckles without adjacent ones going straight, have to really force the full bends. Add in the CTS and the fret hand is getting a real workout. But I was told that playing should actually loosen the hands up a bit.
    Thanks all.

    If it makes you feel any better, I can play proficiently right handed, but a guy in my band plays left handed, and when i try to play his guitar and try to make the chords with my right hand, its horrible.

    Point is, its not knowledge or dexterity; it just takes some time to get the feel "under your fingers" as well as time to strengthen the muscles needed and form calluses.

    As i posted earlier, give it a month of playing for a little while every day, and you'll be jammin

    Ok, so I think I have this figured out. I am going to get lipo on my second and third fingers. That should solve a shitton of issues.

    Chipper is right. It all comes down to muscle memory.
