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"!!!

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 July 21, 2014 at 10:03am
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 July 21, 2014 at 8:54am

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 July 21, 2014 at 8:53am

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 July 21, 2014 at 8:50am

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

Comment by Jud Hair on July 21, 2014 at 6:52am

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.

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

Comment by Sharon Peterson on July 20, 2014 at 11:40pm

Congratulations, Jud!

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

Comment by Steve Byrne on July 20, 2014 at 8:40pm

Great news, Jud. It is great to get a gig. What is this "getting invited back" thing? Don't know anything about that concept. :-)
