    if u know the positions, but arent able to get your fingers do what u want, then it is just question of practice. I hope u got the fingering right though. I mean..barre with index finger, etc etc

    Hey Jay,
    Yeah man that's the problem. I know the positions...just can't bar with the index finger and at the same time hold two strings on the fret second to the barred one! How do I do it??? If I manage to hold the barred fret correctly, I can't reach the other fret and both strings at the same time.. Is it just a matter of practice before I would get it or is there some trick to it?

    As you practice more, your fingers will become more flexible and stronger. Everyone faces these problems while starting out, me included. The best advice I can give you is the same as any pro would - PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE...and dont give up trying. As long as you are passionate about it and have the determination, you can do it.
