I’ve been following Grade 2 of Justin’s course, and has thus been practicing my F-chord a bunch. I’ve heard Justin mention that you should attempt to minimize the bend in the wrist. I find that incredibly difficult and i find myself bending my wrist what feels like quite a lot! Unfortunately I can’t link pictures of my F-chord, but do any of you have some tips on how to know if the bend in the wrist is too large? And maybe some possible solutions?
Hey there! I’m so excited that you and I are on the same area of study! I think I’d like to ask, WHY do you feel like you have to bend the wrist? It’s definitely something you’d should really seek to correct because that can cause a lot of unnecessary tension on the top of the wrist and hand.
Something shared here many moons ago and probably one of the most valuable pieces of advice I have received. Justin does his lessons with the guitar perpendicular to the floor, as it makes it easier to see what he is doing, its more for demonstration. In reality this is where you need to be. And its not just for electrics either. Do this and your wrist will thank you !
