    helpful lessons. You are the best I’ve found to progress at my rate and
    level of simplicity. ;)

    Hello Cebu Rizalista. To answer your question, yes and no. There are many
    professional guitar players with small hands. Yngwie Malmsteen, Brian May
    Lita Ford just to name a few. In the beginning it may seem odd and kind of
    a stretch.
    Just keep at it and practice, practice, practice and sooner than you will
    notice, it is not an issue anymore. Your ligaments will stretch and your
    fingers will gain coordination. Just keep playing and enjoy.

    Alright, my biggest question is how in the world do you spread your fingers
    that far apart? Mine don’t seem too willing to cover that much real estate
    at once, nor that dexterously. I recall when I was taking piano lessons my
    instructor would have me squeeze a tennis ball a lot to get the correct
    finger/hand position for playing keys properly. straight down, similar to
    playing the strings of a guitar it seems to me. Your thoughts? advice?

    I think I have fairly sizable hands, 9 1/4″ tip of thumb to tip of pinky
    with hand wide open. but it looks like your fingers are all darn near
    straight up and down on the strings. Not sure how you manage that.

    I will make my pinky do what I say no matter what ! I tell it what to do .
    It does NOT tell me ! ( Good thing you didn’t give up on walking ….Think
    about it )

  18. paul microns said on 30-12-2013

    maybe you have the wrong size guitar and or neck size too small. try
    classical guitar. the neck size I think is around 1 7/8 inch at the nut
    .only thing is with classical guitar are the strings are nylon .but that’s
    what I did . I went with a classical guitar .

    My pinky says “Nope, i wont do that”

  20. budder minebaam said on 30-12-2013

  21. Stipe Zeravica said on 30-12-2013

    I am a beginner and I find you to be very helpful. I want to learn how to
    play to get my mind away from my life and you are helping me to do so.
    Thank you very much and please keep making videos.

    my problem is that my fingers are to big so when I put the tip on a string
    it hughs the next string.

  24. bear532 said on 30-12-2013

    I feel like you don’t get thanked often enough for your helpful videos.
    Thank you very much!

    As a gamer I had problems with that. Eventually having my fingers touching
    keys far from each other for long times fixed that problem, so yes, they do.
