This is my first post (following thank you post).
I am facing an issue, I'm sure other have had to go through, so hopefully, you may have the answer to my current challenge.
I am practicing the E shape barre chord for over 2 weeks now, going down from 1st fret to 8th fret, trying to get the sound right (clean) 8 out of 8 times at least for both Minor and Major shapes (strumming then picking each chord one by one to check for any culprit :-)). While I manage to get the sound right 7/8, when it is incorrect, it is often because of the D string; I have tried couple of things including: pressing in the middle for the index finger, using a 45 degree angle (rolling index slightly), using flat index (seems to work to correct the issue at times), moving the index up (towards the E string) so that the middle of my index rests on the D chord.
Any suggestion would be hugely appreciated.
