    Hi Mike, I've cheked out your site, congratulations; is a grate site for learning. I have a problem while I'm playing with my right hand when I'm playing chords and I need to change to play fast notes. My hand just does't seems to respond. Any advise??. By the way, is there any place where I can find the explanation of music terms, my english is not working so good, and the diccionary doesn't help a lot.

    Thank you..

    There are a couple of things I do:

    I use a very light touch, thereby keeping hand strain to a minimum and allowing my fingers to move faster as I am not "digging in."

    While playing chords I only rotate my hand slightly (fingers toward the neck) just enough to be able to play all the chordal tones and still be in good position to play pizzacato

    These 2 things should help.
