Trying to work out this chord melody arrangement of Embraceable You and there is one chord that is absolutely impossible to play on my favorite acoustic. Its a Gmaj7 like this: 10,8,11,9 high E to D string. I'm playing the high E string with my ring finger and I can only fret the note at a very tricky angle or my fingernail hits the board and kills it. I could do it if: I had no fingernail The frets were bigger/higher The fretboard was wider I can play it on a classical and on my tele and 339 but I want to play it acoustic steel string. I'm thinking I need to buy a new archtop jazz box right?
