Jud, I tend to use that F when I am coming and going from a C.
Bob Seger Night Moves is a good example because that change tends to be a bit quick. Have you ever seen the rain I will always use the barre.
Tom Petty Breakdown, I start out without the A string, add the A, then release the high E during the extended "alright". But I don't have your audience :)
Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on Monday

I might have to give that a try Jud. I usually play F in either the barre chord form or 1-1-2-3-x-x form or 1-1-2-3-3-x form depending on the song and next chord, but I have big enough hands I should be able to do it.

I do use my thumb for the F# on the sixth string when I play a D/F#. I find that easier than putting my pinky on the fourth string fourth fret for the F#.

And congrats on becoming a paid "gigger"!!!

Comment by Jud Hair on Monday

Michael ... It's just the way I started out and never changed.  Too lazy to try to master bare chords.

Phil ... I can see how it would be "situational" for a lot of players.

Comment by Phil Manuel on Monday
I use both grips, just depends on how I feel at the time. My hands are smallish, so using the thumb is sometimes more difficult.
Comment by michael schwartz on Monday

sad to say, but I use the barr chord. I need to work on that more...maybe if and when I retire??? ha

Comment by Jud Hair on Monday

Thanks folks ... at least now maybe my "new guitar fund" will grow a bit faster.

I feel a bit like that humorous quip that makes the rounds, defining "A Musician" as someone who loads $5,000 worth of equipment into a $500 car and drives 50 miles to make $50.

But the joke's on them, because I'd actually do it for free. :-)

Comment by Jud Hair on Monday

Anybody else here do their "F" chord like this ... wrapped thumb to catch the top E string??

Comment by Jud Hair on Monday

Nice Price for a Seagull Maritime SWS Rosewood QI only $450 w/ gigbag.


The Maritime rosewood model for some reason has the 1.72 inch nut rather than the 1.8 inch nut. A plus for some, a minus for others.

Comment by michael schwartz on Monday

Way to go, Jud!! A budding second career in the making? And to think, we "knew you when".....

Comment by Sharon Peterson on Monday

Congratulations, Jud!

Your music is great.  Hope this is just the first of many, many gigs.
