Re: Fret Reach
Man, you guys are a bunch of freaks -lol. I'm with you, Jimmy, 1-5 is about the limits of my little sausages. I'm talking (somewhat) comfortable playing limits, not holding my guitar up to my neck, hyper-extend my wrist for maximum strech (which would only be 1-6 anyway -lol). I mean what kind of stretches are you guys able to hit comfortably, standing up, playing an actual tune? Some song examples that push the comfort limits for me at various parts of the fretboard would be:
the opening of Modern Day Cowboy (1-3-5, 3-5-7 streches on the lower strings)
beginning of the Tooth and Nail solo (9-14 on the high E)
It's Not Love solo (the 9-10-14 parts on the g and d strings)
Em triad 12-15-19 on the high E (I can't comfortably hit the 12-15-20 on In My Dreams, so I have to tap it)
Although I can hit 12-15-19, 12-16-19 (a la Ice Cream Man) is a bit awkward, so I tap that too.
