Hi folks!
Damn, this is a great song! I get along with most of the parts except for the intro (and corresponding strumming parts): My 2nd finger slips out of position while making the big stretch with first finger to the 6th string in the 7th fret.

That makes the chord sound muddy or I'm muting a site I mustn't after the shift of 2nd finger to the 6th fret.
My posture of fingers (skewed when using first finger on 1st string, then switch to straight positioning) is comparable to Justin's in his lesson (https://www.justinguitar.com/songs/foo-fighters-the-pretender-chords-tabs-guitar-lesson-st-815). Nevertheless, I can't hold position with finger 3.

Does anyone experienced the same? And does anybody know specific finger exercises for this issue?

With regards,
Marcus
