So after playing mostly power chords for so long, I find migrating to the blues and playing barre chords to be difficult to the point of discouraging. I'm working through the "Blues You Can Use" book and the 7th barre chords are actually physically painful to play (I'm not getting any younger) and my overly curved pinky is an obstacle as well. It occurred to me today that I remember reading Jimmy Bruno emphasises 3-note voicings in his online lessons. So I'm thinking maybe I should just roll with the fact that full barre chords are going to be a roadblock for me and stick to 3 and 4 note chords. Is this way of playing more common than I realized?
