Why is My Guitar Hard To Play?
1-Faulty guitar 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-Guitar Action (String Height) too high or too low can make playing difficult.
3-Your guitar frets are not of 100% uniform height causing fret buzz and unpleasant sounds which tend to irritate you. We can level all frets.
Is Your Guitar Hard To Play? You need a guitar setup!
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. We’ll straighten your guitar neck.
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 string. We can do that for you.
6-Got Fret Sprout? What is that?? an undesirable condition in which the sharp 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 guitar playing!
7- Neck too thick. Change to a thinner profile. We can add a new guitar neck for you.
