There is a somewhat difficult chord near the beginning of Isaac Albeniz's Asturias:
The chord is difficult to form in time with the tempo.
Here is what I am already doing:
- Low-action guitar.
- Strings held at fingertips, close to the frets.
- Nails are trim.
- Side of index finger used for the barre.
- Thumb is held relaxed but firm at the middle of the back of the neck.
After a considerable amount of practice I still can't cleanly form this chord as written.
I really can't foresee my current form improving much with additional practice so I guess I am doing something wrong.
Are there any tricks to playing this chord?
