I was learning major scales patterns today and I tried as hard as I possibly could to reach from F to G to A on the E string or even C to D to E on the G string and no matter how hard I tried I could not reach all three notes at the same time and my teacher just kept pushing me to do it. I found this to be weird as most of my friends say that I have rather long fingers. Is there anything I can do technique wise to fix problem, or is this a common thing. Am I just a simple beginner with beginner problems or does everyone have bigger hands that I do??? Any suggestions?
