GUEST,doug Learning guitar with a wonky digit or 2 (22) RE: Learning guitar with a wonky digit or 2 20 Nov 01

The start of the thread mentioned DADGAD and the help that it might bring to those with fingering problems (whatever the cause).

I'm sure that DADGAD might help (especially to those just learning) because of the nice resonant sounds that can be played with only one finger (D,G & A with only one finger playing all six strings makes a lovely sound that will get anybody who is learning eager for more). I'm teaching my 8 year old son at the moment and we often slip into DADGAD so that he can get into the habit of listening for chord changes, listening for what somebody else is doing and making more effective strumming patterns (something we can't do if we wait till he changes from D to G etc).
