Nah if you have big hands it shouldn't be a problem unless your fingers are just insanely large. I'm a heavy built dude, I'm 6"4 and have big hands, pretty wide fingertips but I got used to it. How long have you been practicing shredding and playing all together...?

Nope, not really. Check Steve Vai, he's enormous... well, his hands at least. You just need to get your muscles up to speed.

Persevere, you think you'll be able to shred like a guitar God within six months?



Try harder and ensure you have a proper practice routine. Dedication is paramount.
#12
Meh, If you want to learn shredding stick to it man, but if blues is what you love definitely keep it. Shredding is a nifty thing to learn...So I'd keep with it. It's not like you're going to learn it immediately.

Mmhmm, Im idolise Green Day so much, I mean, I know nothing except powerchords, but I can play some mean power chords man, don't mess with me. You're all jealous that you're not as good as me, you wish you could rip American Idiot Like I can.


...Jackass...


And FYI, I don't even listen to Green Day anymore, hence the "Green Day Sucks" avatar. But it's good to know you stereo type people.

We all know, that deep down you meant it.


But for threadstarter, it doesnt matter if you'er a little on the bigger side, just keep practicing. Your fingers will adapt and your skill level and speed will increase.

Well yes, i have no respect for the kids that think BJA is amazing, but i was kidding with you.

Ghost_bass bear in mind you shouldn't try and play fast (not forcing it), let it come on its own.

I was mistaken, I apologise to you, codybcool.

And yes, dont force the fast palying, or you'll just be sloppy and miss notes. Let it come in time, you cant shred your fretboard to smoke in 3 days.

Shawn Lane, Yngwie Malmsteen, Frank Gambale nowadays, all big guys.

All fast players. The only possible body defect I can think of that would stop someone playing guitar is having no arms, or being deaf.

How much did Shawn Lane weigh when he died? 3000 pounds? No, fat people can shred.
