    Yes, I've been trying to do that.
    Yes, Keith, I'm trying to do that as well.
    Thank you Russ and ripock.
    These are all helpful, I'll keep at it.

    My left hand seems to get tired and sore quicker than it used to, I'm learning some diminished and diminished 7 chords....it's too darn tempting to wrap my thumb over to do those, because of a very small pinkie finger, but I'm strengthening it.

    I find that keeping the neck closer to a 45 degree angle helps my wrist and forearm stay in line. Dropping the neck towards horizontal bends my wrist making barres harder to hold.
