As a beginner I don't know much. But when I change my strings the cheap winder tool just doesn't do it to pull the bridge pins. I have looked on Ebay and found two- one like a crow bar and one like…Continue

"I'll second, third or whatever the wider nut guitar. Always a good choice when you have big, fat or super long hands/fingers.  8-D   Have you also made sure that your finger nails on your fretting hand are as short as possible?…"

Dell Krauchi replied to David's discussion Trouble with c chord
"Hello, I would suggest a wide nut guitar. I would also "assume" that since you refer to having "fatty hands: - that you might also have "fatty fingers"? Would this be correct? What type of guitar are you playing? Steel?…"

Dell Krauchi replied to David's discussion Question about calluses
"Hello,Regardless, but I do not think that you are really listening to what it is that I am saying? As a young guitarist back in the 60's and 70's, I use to play guitar 6-12 hours per day, 6-7 days per week. I never went anywhere without a…"

Tony K. replied to David's discussion Question about calluses
"Here's my 2 cents worth on calluses.  I like 'em on my fingertips.  Once they're built up, I can play non-stop almost forever, or basically until I drop, without any pain in my fingertips. Now, I have a pretty sever case of…"

"Hello, I wrote an article with regards to the use of and the encouragement of calluses. What is particularly interesting is meeting with a number of doctors who discouraged the development of calluses as they considered them as "skin…"

Newbie Dean replied to David's discussion Trouble with c chord
"I had the same problem because of FAT fingers.  I kinda solved that by getting a guitar with a wider nut.  My first git was an Epiphone PR350E with a 1 11/16 nut.  I had the opportunity to play a Taylor GC with a 1 3/4 nut.  BIG…"

Kenneth Lee Eyre replied to David's discussion Trouble with c chord
"I have been playing now for 11 months and the open C major chord was a huge cause of frustration! Finally I added 200 repetitions going from open C to open G and 100 from open C to open D, doing this every morning as part of my warm-up. The count is…"

Jan Vigne replied to David's discussion Trouble with c chord
"My initial response would be along the lines of a guitar with a wider fret board/nut width.  Though nut width can be somewhat misleading since it is not an accurate description of string spacing at the first fret.  And a wider nut width…"

"Thanks for the tips. I wish I could buy a Seagull a great looking guitar. Thanks Phill the trick about the thumb more to the middle of the neck seams to work. It will take some time to speed that move up,Thanks again Dave "

FloridaGull replied to David's discussion Trouble with c chord
"This sounds like a job for...Seagull! Seriously - your Epiphone DR100 probably has a 1 11/16" nut - it sounds like you would benefit from a wider nut - at least 1.75", and the typical Seagull's 1.8" nut would be great! I would…"

Ronald Harris replied to David's discussion Trouble with c chord
"I'm only a beginner myself so these aren't exactly pearls of wisdom. However a fat finger should touch the G string just as much as the E string. If it's only ever the E string, perhaps the E string is being touched by your hand along…"

Phil Manuel replied to David's discussion Trouble with c chord
"Dave, Try this... Just use the top 3 strings to train your index finger to get comfortable with making the "arch". Next, practice an Am7 chord... Top 4 strings of the full C chord - add the open A 5th string And finally... Try the full…"
