Why is My Guitar Hard To Play?
1-Faulty nut slot height or the nut slot is too deep which makes strings too high or low, therefore harder to push down on a fret.
2-Action (String Height) too high or too low can make plying difficult.
3-Your guitar frets are not of 100% uniform height causing fret buzz and unpleasant sounds which tend to irritate you.
Is Your Guitar Hard To Play?
4-Is your neck straight? Most likely-it’s not. This causes you to fight with the guitar and change your technique on various portions of the neck making playing more of a struggle than a pleasure.
5-String gauge is too heavy. If the strings are too big and thick they can be more difficult to manage and tend to make playing harder. Try a lighter gauge.
6-Got Fret Sprout? What is that?? an undesirable condition in which the ends of the frets protrude from the outside edges of the fingerboard giving a sharp “sawblade” effect. This is very uncomfortable. These are some of the usual problems needing correction to make your job of playing guitar, better, easier, more comfortable and fun!
7- Neck too thick. Change to a thinner profile.
