    This goes perfectly with the recent diminished chords thread. It could just as easily be called the my fingers won’t go there thread.

    This is pretty much what it felt like when my guitar teacher slapped me with "Moonlight In Vermont".
    It was a solo guitar arrangement, all chord melody. :D

    I recognize that first one!

    Although they should have snuck a picture in there with six fingers.

    I think that first one is a G demolished.

    That's what happens when you try to do diminished and augmented chords.

    Guitar music written by piano players will do it every time.

    The worst beginner's advice I ever got was to keep your thumb on the back of the neck when making chords. For me it makes it impossible to make chords.
