I have been playing the following bar chord quite a bit and I am noticing that my ring finger is losing stability and getting weaker and might be damaging to my ring finger in the long run.
I know that I can play the chord in the following way. And it has the added benefit that I can play the 6th string can be included when strumming. But I find this way is difficult to play and is not typically how most guitarist play this bar chord.
Does anyone have any advice on which way would be better? If I stick with the first option I'm afraid that this will damage my finger in the long run. Am I being too worried? Is there a device or a band I can wrap around my finger to give it stability? Has anyone heard of anything like this?
