Subject: RE: What the 'F'! The sequel.
There are a lot of reasons that you would use different fingerings, even when the same strings are down. The full barre F is a lot easier to run up and down the neck,and is smoother when you run from F-F13-Fmaj7-F6 and the "thumbover" position can give you blisters and callouses in fairly quickly on the soft inside of the thumb-joint--A lot of players, especially those with formal training, don't even regard the thumbover as valid way of fingering a chord--
