So I found a lesson on Willie Nelson's Night Life, which is about all my ability will allow. And barely that. The video shows the main progression as: Cmaj7 C7 F F#dim7 C A7 Dm G7 Cmaj7 Ebmaj7 Abmaj7 G7 The guy in the video played the E string root 7th chords like this: 5x565x (A7) 4x554x (Abmaj7) 3x343x (G7) So I'm not normally a player of chords like that. I would play A7 as 575655 (and probably not hit all teh strings). The muted out 5th string gives it a different flavor I suppose. I have a hard time "landing" those chords from another position. How would you do it? What seemed to work a bit was getting my middle and ring finger planted, then drop my index finger and tuck in the little finger. It's very cramped which means I need to focus on tipping my palm away from the neck more. But the whole accuracy of grabbing that is new, compared to the way I usually do it. Anyhow, anyone have any tips for this?
