  4. Earth fire acoustic

    Karen Jones, I agree with Doug and Rockerbob. The one thing that discourages new players is the strings are too high off of the fretboard which ultimately causes really sore finger tips when learning. You shouldn't have to press down very hard on the string to make a clear tone. If your guitar is difficult to play have a tech look at it. Mike

  7. Mastering the 12 String Acoustic

    El Salto, I didn't find a 12-string difficult to play. Although, I already knew how to play before purchasing it. My 12-string does have a wider neck so I can see where it would take getting used to when first playing one. The more you play it your fingers will adjust. Have fun with it. Mike
  8. Left Pinky Blues and Handedness

    Framck, I wouldn't worry about it too much. The pinky finger is the weakest finger on the hand. With practice, the pinky will develop more strength and playing the chords will build muscle memory in your fingers. If there is nothing physically wrong with your pinky, it will come around with more practice and playing. Give yourself some time before playing left handed. We've all been there. Welcome to the forum! Mike
