One big exception, I really struggle with the barre on the B string. On the strat with 9s it can get it most of the time. On the acoustic with 12's the B almost never rings out. It's the shape of my damn finger. I can't find a position that works across all 6 strings. Also I can play 2 other non-barre F's, so there some related progress.
Well that's progress. I know what you mean about the B string. Ive had something similar but not sure what string and I use to attribute it to a line in my finger but if you keep at it, one day it will ring clear and you will never think about it again.

I've had friends who could tap pretty good, they tried showing me the technique but the old dog, new tricks adage comes to mind.

I'm learning to cook Creole food and actually giving in to eating it. There just aren't that many decent places down here that offer my preferred genres of food, so I'm finally giving into fried fish, gumbo, etc. I just refuse to pay high dollar for poverty sailor food though, so I'm learning to cook it myself. When you paying $15 dollah for a "poh" boy something is just not right.
