Thread Name: Guitar: Teeny Tiny Fingers
Subject: RE: BS: Teeny Tiny Fingers
My fingers are like fat little sausages! But hey, like that's gunna stop me playing guitar! And the other posts are right, you've gotta get rid of your teacher. I remember, during one of my guitar lessons, i was having huge problems with a particular chord. And when i tried to explain to my teacher that i just simply couldn't do it because my fingers are too short and that maybe i should try stretching them...he laughed, and then showed me where i was going wrong...the way i was holding my guitar was wrong for that particular style so my hand was also in the wrong place and it meant that i was unable to fret properly.
