The action on my guitar is fine: it was easy to play until I broke my left hand in two places (below the ring and index fingers). It is an old Harmony steel string.
I find that if I tune the guitar down I get even more buzzing then I do without tuning it down even with a capo. I play with a capo a lot anyway and find my worst problems occur when I need to play something without the capo.
In December I couldn't play at all. By the end of May I have worked my way back into sometimes being able to play a clear "A" chord, sometimes being able to play a "C." "F"s are woeful all over the fingerboard, even capoed on seventh or ninth. "G"s and "D's" are fine, as well as some minor chords.
Before the fall that affected my fingers I had played for nearly forty years, mostly fairly simple fingerpicking as song accompaniment
Would some of you like to address how you play on a bad day, how you play when you feel frustrated with your playing, how you play when you feel stuck, how you jolly yourself along?
