Or do I just have small hands?
So I learned the basic riffs for ZZ Top's touch with my teacher's guidance. But I am at home trying the bluesy shuffle riff and man is it hard.
It has a bunch of two note chords that start off 2 frets apart (fine), 3 frets (fine) then 5 frets apart (WTF my pinky barely reaches).
Are there tips to train yourself to be able to reach that distance more comfortably?
Big stretches is nothing I've ever had trouble with, but I've always had to make sure to stretch my fingers like crazy.
Do you stretch them at all?
