Session 3 - fingering for 10ths on 5th/4th string


Recommended Posts

Getting pretty comfortable with doing 3rds and 6ths but with 10ths I find it somewhat awkward to use the index on the root note and ring/pinkie as I believe Steve does in the video.

For the 5th string I find that using my 2nd finger on the root and pinkie on the 10th is more comfortable (on the root note). Then when the interval is one fret shorter I find it easiest to use the same two fingers (2nd and pinkie) but just have them 1 fret apart rather than 2. I've been using this for example in Blackbird chorus as it feels a lot easier. 

Is this bad form or does it largely not matter?
