Practice more. Obviously.

What you really need is a new amp.

I heard about this instrument once that was for guitar failures and dropouts- it was called a bass. Apparently it only has 4 string, so it's way easier, and the strings are HUGE!!! However, you will never get laid or get any attention- so beware.
I pride myself on my humility.

Also this thread is... hilariously sad.


OP, cut your ring fingernail.

Also, did you take these in your bathroom or something?

What. I was expecting you to have three fingers or no skin or something. You can play just fine.

Your pinky is so far up it looks like you are trying to drink tea politely or something.

And what's with the gang sign in pic 4?

Hey now, no reason to harp on Bass players.
I can only listen to so many breakdowns and "spoken word" vocals before I wanna puke.

I find Jennette McCurdy attractive, but Elizabeth Gillies and Debby Ryan much more so.

That's enough, Djent people. We get it.

Asking for guitar help in the Off Topic section?

Not to mention it being a seriously stupid question.





I'm not saying you're stupid, TS. Just that the question is really really stupid.

Your fingers are fine. Try playing slower. Watch instructional videos to make sure you're pressing the string in the right place etc.

I'm not sure what you think is wrong with your hand, but just keep practicing and you'll get better. I couldn't hold chords or solo when I just started out either.

Yes, you have perfectly normal hands and can play guitar, you just need to practise the right technique more.

This shouldn't be posted in this section of the forum, you want the 'Electric Guitar' sub forum

Your fingers are heavier than mine, if a bit shorter.

Yes you can, just practise.

And get your damn pinky sorted you're an embarrassment.
