Yeh the Scorps, Ben I have been learning from you with your lessons on the Scorps, my Favorite band..

in your lesson Scoprs Ry-them, I tried to stretch my Fingers index and little finger to do the 75 to 85 Power chords but I seemed to not get my fingers to stretch that far.. like they point inward and not straight, does that take practice to get them to go straight across the fret board, my fingers are average length not short but it makes them feel that way..

So I had to use my thumb to play that chord that goes from

Hi Michael, glad to hear you're enjoying the Scorps lessons ! They're a great band smile.gif

It's quite normal for the fingers to point inwards.. even though my fingers may look straight, when they're stretched out to my limit then they start bending inwards too smile.gif

It's a boring answer but the only way to train your hands to adapt to it is just by doing it regularly and slowly increasing the time that you hold your fingers in that position. It will probably start a burning sensation after holding your fingers in a stretch for a while so keep taking frequent pauses.
