Guitar and bass basics

Anyways, the only thing we can tell you is to practice. It's boring and frustrating, but that's the only way to get better and truly enjoy playing. Also check out the lessons area of the site.

what helped me a lot is just keep chipping away at it also try to make sure your fretting hand is relaxed and your other fingers arent muting any other strings there is also very good lessons on UG that can really help you out!
Make sure to keep going, dont give up, but if youre struggling dont just try that over and over, try other things and keep yourself interested. more specificly make sure you're fretting with the very tips of your fingers.

Thumb placement is pretty crucial,try messing about with different positions. Other than that what everyone else says....practice!!

Having the right guitar and gauge of string might make a difference too but practice first lol
