Ballad of Jed Clampett

Posted by KenBirmingham on Sunday, April 21, 2013

I`m trying to learn Ballad of Jed Clampett but I`m finding the first full D chord extreamly difficult for my short stubby fingers to get right, does anyone know a different, easier D chord I could use as a substitute.

Just keep at it Ken, I had the same problem and kept working on it and it came. Don't try to work around it as you will need that four finger D chord in the future on other songs. Just keep at it and it will come.

Thanks Oalbrets, I`ll keep trying.

I agree, it took a while to get the 3 finger D then add the 4th finger move down......but it will happen, it's one of my fastest tunes now......and favorites.
