    It is in my opinion not just about the fret spacing, scale. I can't play easy Aquila nylguts or nylon strings on soprano higher up the neck because of their thickness. It is not about exactly, that...

    I usually in a fast strum tend to intuitively if there is an up strum like "4 and" change the chord with "and", so the next beat chord is right. This is quite common thing to do I've also heard.
