Hello folks,

Whenever I play chords I get pitch issues due to finger pressure. The problem is, my hand isn't relaxed enough when making the chord shape and I think, subconsciously I'm fretting hard to make the fretboard stop my fingers from springing back to their "home" position. It's like holding an unfamiliar yoga position I guess, not that I do yoga biggrin.gif but I guess people strain to hold position and tend to strain.

When I watch Ken (Klassaine) play chords, his fingers look so so relaxed whereas mine are like the hands of someone in a rage.

I know the word "practise" will appear but any tips on how to keep the hand relaxed particularly when playing dominant 7 barre chords will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks folks.

Worth getting the album not only for the great man's playing but also to introduce you to blues you may not have heard of. cool.gif

One of our main customers is making a series of videos about us, here is part 1.

They have some more about us HERE that aren't part of the same series.

I know some of you won't be interested but some of you have an engineering background and may like it.

Some of you will have seen these but I thought it might be good to put them all together here for those that have missed them. Everyone can get something from Guthrie cool.gif
