Having a hard time fretting a transition…Skip some strings

Comments: 0

I was working on the song, “I Bowed on my knees and cried holy.”

Not a too terribly difficult song, although I messed it up in the middle…

Here it is in YouTube…

In any case, I have this move from an open G to an Open G7…

Now that is a big stretch…I don’t have a too terribly difficult time with G because I have been doing it a lot…

But G7…it looks a lot like the open C chord, but it is a little more stretchy….

And the jump from G to G7 is pretty difficult…

At least for me…

So what do I need to do?

I need to go head and follow Justin Sandercoe’s great method…and do some one minute changes and just work on G to G7…

That will work…

But I hate one minute changes….

But those are a very effective part of Justin Sandercoe’s method. Check out his method by clicking here.

But…yeah…I hate it…

and anyway…I will practice the transition, but I will get to it…so what do I do RIGHT NOW?

I’m glad you asked….

Here is what you do….

Skip the top 2 strings and just play the other 4…

Skip the low E and the A string…

Play the other 4 strings…

And put your first finger in the first fret on the High E string…

That is a whole lot easier…

and as you can see in the video….it is working for me…

Check it out…

Till next time…
