Start making the E chord with your 3ed, 4th and 5th fingers. Get so you can make it sound right. Then move your fingers up to where they should be to make an F. Now all you have to fight is your first finger and the new angle you have to hold your hand at. Try different angles.

5th finger? As in your thumb? I don't think so...Going to assume you meant 2,3,4.

Thanks all...I can now make the f that uses finger 1 on 1 and 2 strings 1st fret, finger 2 on 3rd string 2nd fret and finger 3 on 4th string 3rd fret. There was a helful video on youtube that advised me to use the outside of my index finger. I'm gettin' there!
