Hi, my fingers won't reach the 17th (well, I could almost force them). How is the below tab played?
Well, you probably should. It's not the most comfortable position but hey soloists do that kind of thing. I can reach 19 fine and maybe higher if I exercised, have about average fingers. If you really can't, then you can tap, and if you don't want that - the note is available on the string below at 17 or 16 depending on where you are
You must have the tiniest hands known to man, try tapping it?
