Been playing now for about a year. I know to master new chords it is all about repetition. This Ab7 is killing me though. I am currently learning it with the 1323 position. Similar to what they are showing here:
I am doing a progression from a Dm to the Ab7 to a Bb. No problems with the Dm or Bb though. I checked out the alternatives. Barring looks great, but I really don't want to go down all the way to the 9th fret. The 5th fret way looks just as much a hassle than the 1323 way. I guess I am just impatient Any tricks or techniques anybody can share will be greatly appreciated.
