Do any of you know of an off the shelf CG that has a wider than usual neck and bigger spacing between strings?
I ask because I am finding it difficult to stop an annoying result of playing some chords. I have very fleshy fingers and if a chord is covering high as well as low strings, the bottom of my 2nd or 3rd fingers touch the string below and it is driving me up the wall as it deadens the string and sounds dreadful.
I have the same frustrating problem...and I don't
have fleshy fingers. I don't think thick fingers are the problem, I think it's got to be technique--not coming down on the strings at a 90-degree angle. When I consciously try for that, I do get good results, but it sure doesn't feel natural.
If you want proof that fat fingers don't interfere with clean playing, just look at a video of Andres "Mr. Sausage-fingers" Segovia.
