    Ugh!! I WISH I had seen this video earlier! I’m about 8 months or so into my playing…transitions are getting better…but ALWAYS issues between C any G and D and C …

    Its because I am using I,M, R & P for my G…then BIG move to C!

    I was only using I,M, R for G…I’m going to Re-train fro G!

    ALSO! WHY is my ring finger always slipping off of the E string while on “D” chord?! I’m up high on it, seems my nail is allowing the slippage- any cure?
