Recently I bought a guitar (but I am learning it totally through internet, due to lockdown condition). If I hold the guitar in suggested posture (or like everybody do), I cannot almost see the fretboard and strings.
Now, to play a note, if I press the fretboard in one hand, and try to play the string in another hand, what happening, almost inevitably I am plucking a wrong string (not the string whom I have targeted in the fretboard).
Now, how to ensure I am pressing+plucking the same string? Are there techniques for that?
What I have tried:
Counting by finger the wires one after another every time before pressing and plucking --- Very slow process.
Saw the web and Stackexchange music site but didn't find this specific problem.
PS. Currently I am keeping the guitar horizontally on lap, so that I can see the entire fretboard clearly; but I am willing to learn the standard way (like everybody do) but I am completely stuck. (Ironically seems like only solution could be if I install a large mirror in front of me, but currently this is not possible, and not ever heard anybody do that.)
