Hi all, I recently got back into guitar after being forced to sell my gear years ago and bought a classical. I was still pretty new when I had to get rid of it before, though.

Anyway for my question. I'm trying the Spanish Romance song in sections, but I'm having trouble on a specific section's fingering. It's

11--
----7
-------8
--
--
7

Sorry if that shows up poorly, in trying to do this on my phone. I've been trying to barre the seventh fret, but I'm not getting good sound from the F#. Normally on barre chords, I use the side of my index finger so that I don't get that muffled sound from the b string, but I can't reach the 11th fret doing this and haveit sound consistently good. Should I work on stretching further or do you think there's something wrong with my technique? Thanks

Hmm, this is one of the first pieces I ever learned. You should be able to barre that. I just grabbed my classical and played through it and noticed that I do flatten my finger instead of using the side of it in this case.
