I just thought I'd share with you that I posted a new lesson on my lessons page, geared at helping rank beginners get over their struggle with the D chord. This is geared at beginners of course because it's such an entry-level point of discussion, but I'd love to receive feedback and comments from you accomplished pickers too.
So if you've been playing awhile, do you remember what a challenge it used to be to make the D chord? What a nightmare chord. I've had people quit taking lessons because of this chord.
If you are new, or "new-ish", and you struggle with the 4-finger D chord, remember that it's not natural for our arms and hands to try to form this chord, and you have to "teach" your arm and hand to do it. I've got a couple tips for conditioning your arms and hands and accomplishing the D chord quicker. I'd be honored to have you take a look.
I have a lesson on my main site lessons page, and I also blogged about the topic today too. Here are links to each:
Blog: www.mybanjolife.com (it's the lead article as I write this)(Please leave comments at bottom of blog entry)
Lessons page on main site: www.banjosrule.com/lessons.html (look for the third lesson about the D chord.)
Thanks everyone and I hope you are all having a good fall. Take care and as I always say: pick 'em if ya got 'em!
