Cool. I've been practising the chords over and over and I'm almost fluent with the changes (but that C6aug5 is still killing me! XD ).
One thing I noticed though, I think it'd be easier if you held the first chord with the middle and ring fingers because then you don't have to move your middle finger for the next 2 chords.
But, then, I guess it's all preference.
Yes, I actually hold it both ways (whichever way just "happens"). Yeah, that C6aug was tough (still is, although I now have about a 75%+ "hit-ratio" when I go to it!
). I JUST found a chord I like (in the B section) that's a monster. Not really super-hard, but waaaaaaaay unusual. It's Caug5 (I think) and it goes in the position where the C6aug5 would be. I don't think it's what he used (because I would have noticed if Paul did it for sure!). You know how that first C6aug is a bit tough because of the two-strings with one finger thing? In the area between the 8th and 11th frets there's a Caug he uses, which isn't too tough (although that original C6aug can be used there as well). Anyway... I've found that I like a hi-C note in there on the 6th-string as well. In order to hold it, you would need to again hold a 2/3 pair of strings cleanly with one finger tip. It was hard enough to do it on the first fret, but I've found it virtually impossible on the 9th-fret (because of the wider string-spacing plus higher action that far up the neck). So I tried every concievable way to try to hold what I wanted (which was a X 11 10 9 9 8). The only way I could do it (the unusual part) was to use the thumb ON THE 1ST STRING!!!! (Held OPRMIT!) I'd never done it before. It was totally foreign feeling at first, using the thumb on the "wrong" side of the neck (as I held the neck gripped between my palm and the other fretting fingers, my thumb sort of angled-in approaching the 8th fret from behind, holding it with sort of the side of my thumb. The funny part is, after messing with it for about a half hour, I actually found it getting easy to do!!! Anyway, I'll try to get these done today, or tomorrow at the latest. (And maybe even be brave enough to do a SoundClick of it, although there's no way I have this tune down well enough where I would play it in front of an audience (unless I just omitted the B section and sort of "winged it" through several rounds of Section A with a Section C maybe).
