Barré problems 

I have problems with the following part below from a Gerardo Nunez tango falseta:



With capo at 3 it's possible but without capo...I can get it working.
Any tips how to practise this? I see it often in falsetas, you have to barré a F chord and then do all sorts of freaky ligados, but when I move my pink the barre starts to shift and the sound is gone

Capo 3:

No Capo attempt:
(why cant I upload audio files?)

Is it possible that you have small hands?

It's a tricky one... My advice would be for you to practice it very slowly without a capo in order for your fingers to get used to the stretch. Also, make sure that your thumb is anchored and aligned properly.
Here's a video of Paco playing picado por Solea with a barre... insane!


Goodluck.

Saludos

thanks, interesting topic. Did Grisha post that video somewhere about stretching?
I really think that will work. My hand are normal I guess, but like ricardo said in your topic it doesn't really matter nor does guitar scale I think.
