im having problems playing the first part, where you have to barre the ebg strings on the 5th fret and the D string on the 7th fret. i cannot get it, my index finger really hurts from barring the strings trying to keep them barred right, while they are barred i cannot put my other finger on the 7th fret, it doesn't reach without hitting every other string.

the part im having problems with looks like this.....

E-------5-------
B-----5---------
G---5-----------
D-7-------------

if it hurts to barre it, you're doing it wrong and you need to pick a different song until you can do it

Try barring the fret with the side of your finger, not the bottom. This'll let you curl your barring finger a bit and be able to reach the 7th fret

It might be worth buying a smaller guitar for a while because that's a relatively small stretch.
I don't mean that in a horrible way, but it would be much more comfortable for a couple of years.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

try to curl your ring finger over the 7th fret so you don't bump the other strings, and practice bar chords to strengthen the index finger.
