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 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…"

"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…"

Trouble with c chord

I am needing help with the making of the c chord. I have fatty hands especially in the callus pad area and every time I try to make the c chord I end up deadening the e string. I have my arch right but I still can't get the c chord to ring true. I have been learning how to play for over a year now but I still can't get the c chord. Is there any one else on here that has this issue and can offer some suggestions?ThanksDaveSee More

michael medex replied to David's discussion Bridge Pin Puller
"Once you unwind the string try pushing it in the the pin whole before you remove the pin . You only need like a 1cm lengh to go in n the pin should lift right out with your finger tips"

AJ Ouellette replied to David's discussion Bridge Pin Puller
"Has your guitar been exposed to more or less humidity than usual? If it has, you could try putting it in a more controlled environment that would be ideal for your guitar and then it might adjust properly. Also, sometimes the bridge pin slots on the…"

"I put a penny on my index finger, gently put my hand through the sound hole and rest it on the tip of the pin. Then I push, firmly and carefully. Out they slide one-by-one. "

"If I ever get trouble getting a pin out,I get an eraser,or something as firm,put your hand into the soundhole,and press it against the sharp end of the offending pin, gentle pressure should release it,if not,a gentle tap with something solid,(very…"

"Do you use fast fret or any kind of string lubricant on your guitar? If not, I would definitely recommend it, it seems to help a lot."
