Ah.....but it's easy to forget the novices; those with small hands; those with less dexterity in their hands than what we might be blessed with; those who may not pick things up as quickly as some others.

For a beginner, the F chord is the most difficult, and that's not even including the wrap around thumb, or playing it in a barre position. Bar chords can be extremely taxing as well. The tendons and muscles need time to "condition" in order to nail these types of chords comfortably and on the fly.
