I think that this is a valid argument , considering my experience. I am somewhat “older” late 60s than most when taking this instrument up
and after attempting on and off for the last year I am almost at the point of no return.
I have a Yamaha F310 and even with the help of an instructor am not able to nail the basic Chords, especially C Major I am simply unable to stop my ring finger from collapsing or hitting the 4th String. Even though I can barre all 6 strings up to the 1st fret the moment I try to then form any shape be it F Major or B the strings “ miraculously “ escape
I keep telling myself that it takes time, however the same faults keep arising
Does this ring true with others that have had similar problems, how did you/ or not overcome them ?
