    Hello Sir,

    I find you lesson very very helpful i giving me confidence to start playing guitar. I am 30 years old and so a late starter. I got my first acoustic guitar last week. But now my doubt is, is it possible that someones fingers are too short in length so he can never fret without touching adjacent strings. Can you please let me know is there a Technic how to bend the fingers so that inside of my palm doesn’t touch the first string in the bottom.

    I am kind of confused whether my palm is too small after trying a bit.

    Thanks & Regards
    Joyson Abraham

    Hi there – I came to your article having scoured the net looking for an answer to possibly a stupid question.
    I have been playing acoustic 6 string for years and am comfortable finger picking. While playing I support my hand by placing the tip of my little finger on the soundboard. I have just acquired a dobro (round neck) for the first time – how should I place my hand? Resting the base/wrist on the bridge makes it difficult to pick the bottom 3 and unsupported I lose accuracy. Is it OK to rest the pinky on the resonator or will this mar the tone?
