Are you arpeggiating them or doing them as broken chords?

Hi. Here's an idea:



Maybe because you are using 4 instead of 3 it's causing a stretch between the fingers 4 and 5. If that's the case then simply try 3 instead, e.g

C , E, G, C are played using:
1, 2, 3, 5 respectively

D, #F, A, D would again use:
1, 2, 3, 5 respectively

E, G, B, E:
1, 2, 3, 5

F, A, C, F:
1, 2, 3, 5

G, B, D, G:
1, 2, 3, 5


And so on.

You might need to do a bit of stretching work between your 4th and 5th finger but not to the point that it's uncomfortable for you. Also, it's good to start the chords in a sequence from C, as you move through each note in order, move your RH thumb to the RIGHT, onto the bottom note of the next broken chord. Aslo I'm assuming your hands are bent, aren't too flat etc, right?

Let me know if it helps
