How long did it take you to master barring?
As you maybe aware I am starting to play at a more “ advanced” age than most and am getting there, albeit I have am now taking lessons, which by the way have been invaluable in getting me past the obstacle I had.
Now it’s come to the dreaded F Major and barring. I KNOW it’s possible but is it a question of perseverance? I am using spring grips to improve my hand strength. Alas it’s a very slow process. I can barr 2 strings and even 5, but not 6. The moment I have barred and try to add another finger it goes Pear shaped.
So I would be interested to hear from others, is there a trick involved?
