I was starting my practice, a few days ago, by very kindly saying: "Ok, let’s see if I can train this little pinky to stay nicely curved on the frets while doing the chord changes (it tends to collapse down)… and…it swore at me! It claimed to be perfectly able to do the job if only “his majesty” wouldn’t pull upwards so nastly! And for calling me an “idiot not to realise it before” it got punished with a doubled work-out session Great discovery, though. @RoseRock
Smeagol :The songsies, we must play them!
Gollum : Patience! patience, my love. First we must practice the chords changes.
Smeagol: The changies? what about the filthy scalesies, must we learn them too?
Gollum: All in good time, we must go along now, but later we will add 9’s to major scales.
Smeagol: NINESIES? yes ninesies are our friend!
Exactly!!! You described it perfectly! The songsies God…my guitar journey is really messed up! I’m following the “PPP rule”: Passion, Practice and Patience!
@Tbushell what if it’s not pinky"s fault but ring finger being nasty and bossy?!
Yup, some fingers are indeed “problem children”. And getting other fingers in trouble…just like real children…
