The issue is getting your fingers to do what you want at the same time. Tips I give my beginner students are: (a) play slower: this will give you more time to process what needs to be done and will also help build muscle memory for you fingers to react more quickly (b) be prepared: always be prepared for the next chord and think about how you are going to transition prior to playing it (b) user anchor fingers: as a work around see which fingers you can get into position quickly then correct with the others while maintaining your rhythmic pattern. Keep doing this until you can get all fingers into place simultaneously Hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions or require elaboration Mike Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
