For as long asI have been playing barre chords I played them this kinda way.
Only I do not fret two strings with one finger, I use the pinky too. it still seems to give me the freedom to pull that pinky off and put it anywhere else and still sounds good to my ear ( I may be muting the string the pinky vacated I am not sure ) .
For me that whole chord using the pinky too is very natural, and I am not sure if I will really benifit right now from learning the technique using one finger for those two strings.
I notice that I do tend to have that high e muted, but I can get it to ring out if I want to, its just that it mostly sounds better to me muted :p
So I guess my question to Justin would be, should I skip over this for now, as I feel I have a way to play that type of chord, or is it really worth re learning the more advanced fingering. ?
