Hi, so this might be a really silly question, but I am polishing up on a piece, and this particular chord right here is giving me a lot of trouble.
Right now the fingering I am using is 3,2,1 if that makes sense. Oh and the upper two notes is a b flat and a e natural, that's why it is a little bit awkward to play. Also the note that tends to be out of tune is almost always the e natural(the middle note). The bottom and the top note are usually in tune. However, when you play a chord, and one note is even slightly out of tune, it pretty much makes it worthless.
It looks like a very simple and harmless chord, and when I play it in isolation it's not very hard. But, when I play the piece, and get to this spot, it's a little bit out of tune more than half the time.
Before this chord, I have a shift on another string, so I actually don't have a lot of time to prepare for it.
Also, the rest of the chords(there are many of them) in the piece are not giving me too much trouble. Maybe it's a psychological thing? Like I'm psyching myself out? Any ideas?
