Hello,

First I'm a total n00b taking Lisa McCormick's beginner course. I got as far as the Simple C and Simple G chords and already I have an issue... My problem is I can't bend my index finger to play the Simple C without hitting the lower E string. I've tried many times but no matter what I try I can't get my fingers to cooperate. I suspect this will improve over time but was wondering if anyone knows of any finger exercises I can do that will help with this situation.

TIA,

Rob

Do you warm up your fingers by stretching them?

Warm Up Exercises

These are very good exercises to do before every practice session. Your fingers will feel more flexible after you've done them.

Good luck
