Violin Power!! I've only been playing a year though, but I still love it (even though I don't practise nearly as much as I should)

I used to play Piano, but I hated it.

i used to play clarinet in primary school.
from when i was 11 i played piano, up to grade 5 last year when i quit cos i never practised and i didn't have the time for it.
i played the recorder in year 3 and 4 (it was compulsory!)
and i learnt simple guitar in year 8 music.
i would have liked to play a harp... that looks like fun, though there aren't many harp teachers!

I have been playing the electric guitar since the start of this year (so basically nine months) but I usually only get the chance to play in the holidays. I would also love to learn how to play the drums but my neighbours and family wouldn't like that too much;). They hate it enough already when I play the guitar:(.

Question for those who play the guitar: when you have to play a chord with two strings fretting on the same fret e.g. the 8th fret on the B string and the 8th fret on the G string, do you use two separate fingers or just the same finger pressing on both the strings:)?

how would you play something with 2 notes, but theyre pretty far apart, without playing the notes in between? eg.

e:------
B:--1---
G:------
D:------
A:--3--
E:------

Also, if that is a chord, you would play the strings in between "open", i.e. without pressing on any frets:).

How would everyone play something like this:

e-------------------------------------------------|
B------11-14-11-----11-11-11-11-11------|
G--10-------------13---------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------|

I am trying to play it by having my index finger on the G-10 note and stretching my pinkie out to the B-14 note but it is really hard. How would everyone else play it:)?

I just played that, I didnt find it hard.....Maybe im just a fully PwNzOr aXeMaN?

Practising it over and over with a metronome will take care of it though. I cant believe youre a guy.......
