    In order to play a clean G7 chord is it necessary to have both the forefinger and the second finger broken and re-set in a better position or is there another way around it :cry: :swear:

    Been learning for a week now :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Hey Mike, glad you have seen the light.

    I find that the more you can get the tip of your fingertips to press the strings the better. The G7 can be a bit awkward at first but you will get it with practice.

    A good practice routine is play a bar each in order of C A minor F and then G7. The fingers will fall naturally into position as the chords are complimentary.

    Good luck and keep at it. Practice will bring rewards and a smile.:thumb:

    I know what you mean Mike. I found the neck far too small on a uke. :Smile:
