Are your hands too small to play guitar? Do you have any trouble playing those 'stretchy' scales and chords that other guitarist can play with ease? Do you think that the size of your hands is holding you back?

If you have small hands, I do really understand your plight. I have fairly small hands too (in fact many of my female students have larger hands than mine!), so I know how frustrating it is to not have that extra hand reach that other players naturally have.
