These are Hard

Chords are hard. A chunk of it is from maneuvering your fingers into the right configuration on the fretboard, but a whole other part is getting the chord to ring out clearly. You can tell if unintentionally mute a string, or if your finger slips to the wrong fret [so that it rings out horribly] but getting it all to ring out clearly seems nearly impossible.

I can understand now why [when isolated] bassists who started out as guitarists tend to sound messy. I wonder if I should lighten up on my standards.
