Im self tought, been playing for a long time. I skipped learning the standard chords. So I decided that I needed to learn them. How is it that people can switch from like a G chord to a G2 chord fast? I also seem to have a problem to get the open strings to play because my fingers are in the way. Any help.
What about the open strings being muted because my fingers are in the way?
Is it how im positioning the guitar? I always practice sitting.
You just need to work on finger positions. Don't play the chord until you know none of the strings are going to be muted. It takes time and lots of practice.
