I've been playing guitar for about a few months now, and i've "mastered" the CAGED chords and theirs minor relatives. Meaning i can switch between them pretty quickly but I'm not a pro or anything. I'm now learning some new chords like ninths and sevenths and i find them difficult to do.
My question is, when learning new chords, as you get better does it become easier to learn new chords because you've built up the muscle strength in the fingers and wrist? Or does each new chord you learn need to be "programmed" into muscle memory by repetition? Or is it a little of both?
What have you found in your experience to be true?
