Asked by Jimmy Dean on 2000-06-23
I have trouble squeezing all my fingers into the second fret for A major. Suggestions?
Answer posted by Jonah on 2000-07-17
you can do two things. one, use your pinky ring and middle fingers instead of the recommended way. if that doesnt work try using on of your fingers to hold 2 or 3 of the strings

There is one way that is much easier but you lose the ring of the first string. just simlply use your index finger to puch down on 3 of the 4 strings muting the first string.

Here's a suggestion that may be awkward, but if you switch your middle and index fingers (ring on second, index on third, middle on fourth), it will give you more space on the fretboard and still allow you to sound the first string. I personally can't get used to this, but I've seen people who are proficient at it.

just use one damn finger and bar those three strings

Hey man great idea for you, give up trying to squeeze your fingers onto the fretboard and start SQUEEZING SAUSAGE LINKS ! You know you could make a million selling Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage Links....what ya think ?

try pitching your hand up so your fingers twist. it will give you a cleaner sound and more room.
