Attempting to learn barre chords and am having trouble with the G-string. What is happening is while I have sufficient pressure (at least I believe so?) the middle third of my index finger is extremely soft and the string still moves (as my flesh provides no resistance). Note this happens at all frets and I am only barring all 6 strings, not an actual chord per-say.
If I move my finger vertically, then whatever strings fall in that inner third has that issue. Then, testing this theory, I taped a penny to that section and tried - and it the barre played smoothly!
Which leads me to my question: overtime will I develop tougher skin where all 6 strings are pressed? Meaning just keep playing with the G string making a muted sound until one day it all falls into place?
