New Member need a little advice.

I just got my first 3 string CBG and I love the musical versatility. Has a harp player it be perfect. My question is about fretting. The fretting is hard. I have several guitars and even my old acoustics aren't this hard. Is this nature of the beast and I need to fight through it or can it be adjusted out? I don't want to fool with it till I know what I'm doing. Any advice would be appreciated.See More
