    hey nate.. when i barre the strings and play them individually, the 1st two and last two strings are heard clearly but my G and D strings sound muted no matter how hard i press my finger…. hope you can help me out.. thanks 🙂

  12. Lawrence Abbott says:

    so what I dont understand is, if I bring my elbow down to my body and I try to make that barre, my wrist has more of a tendency to become bent. also, when I play barre chords up at the 10-13 frets, my wrist must bend more dramatically to make that shape. any tips? Im mostly struggling with keeping a straight wrist to avoid that pain.
