Stretching Trick for Guitar

Do you have a chord that requires a difficult stretch that is causing you trouble? Peter Vogl has a quick tip for you that will help your hand adjust to these larger stretches.

 

 

Using a capo allows you to practice that chord in a more manageable position up the neck where the frets are closer together. Once you get comfortable with the chord, try moving the capo down a fret. Continue working on the stretch and moving the capo down until you can play it in the correct position. Watch our Big Stretch Chords practice session to try out this tip on some tricky chords.
