Thread Name: Fingers, Hitting Frets, & Not Looking
Subject: RE: Fingers, Hitting Frets, & Not Looking
Wyo-- Certainly the musicians with whom I jam don't consider it impolite to watch the fretting of others. When I'm playing a song which is unfamiliar to me, or when I'm with a group of folks I don't know well, I try to position myself so that I can watch the left hand of the guitarist in order to follow the chords to learn the tune. Watching others/playing with others--The best way to learn and to acquire versatility.
