    Sorry - it doesn't get any easier that that!!

    You're obviously doing something wrong - but without actually seeing what you're doing, it's impossible to say - it would be a guess at best!!

    Get a lesson with a teacher - any decent teacher should be able to spot what's going wrong in a few minutes - but we might never be able to work it out here!! :meh:

  4. Even though you described it very well, I have no idea what you're talking about. It sounds like you know the tune well, so you might make an attempt to figure it out. Knowing what you're trying to play is the biggest requirement for figuring out how to play a tune.
