Try barre chords, first finger just lies across all strings. Works for me.

Well, the moment has finally arrived. I must master the F and B Flat chords. No more excuses....

Any advice on the first finger would be met with gratitude!

You "might" have an Alvarez stuck in a cornor???? LOL. What a terrible position to be in LOL. I honestly envy you, I have to suffer with only 7 guitars. If I ever win the lottery that will change.

A quick hello and welcome to David Susman. Glad you are here, David. Btw, David has started his own group for Alvarez Owners. I think I have an Alvarez stuck in the corner around here somewhere. Might see you there,

Mark Metzler and Michael Renner have joined the ranks. Welcome to both of you! Don has been promoted to coffee steward so we are in good shape...just don't drink out of that Martin cup...Martin owner's can be peculiar. (Just kidding)

Steve, you what you describe is exactly where I am. LOL

Sometimes, all you need is a chance to sit back , catch your breath, and take a look around. Then you'll notice all the rest of the work your house needs, Derrick.

Hey Derrick
Got a couple of pots going here one decaf and the other hi-test, help yourself to a cup or two. As a local RV center says in their ads "The coffee's always on"

David, I will admit my guitar is looking pretty neglected these days. I was just getting back into a much simplified practice routine when I bought my first house. Guess what. My home came with a list of DIY projects and that has preoccupied me for the last few weeks. Hope to get back to the music soon, though.

Hi Derrick,

Thanks for the welcome. Glad to be a part of the group. I've been playing about 18 months, not real seriously, but enough to have some chords and play some songs. Looking forward to checking out the discussion here.

I remember that concert from last year, Donna. I do hope you have some more of the great stories and pictures to share. Last year's were priceless!
