Go easy please. I've only been playing for a few weeks.
Great progress man.
That's great for such a short time at the helm. I suspect at this time next year, you'll giggle at your "old" video. Well done.
That's really good for just a few weeks of playing. And kudos for posting it.
Keep up the good work !
It's both fun & rewarding !
Not bad at all.
I like to see people starting out on quality equipment. There must be more than a few aspiring players out there who quit early because they didn't yet have the chops to make the cheapie stuff they had to start out on sound good.
Some more Practice Sessions (not the same song) - I've been playing about 6 weeks at this point.
And then just some scales to work on more than just chords and chord transitions.
Today in my 7th Guitar Lesson, we spent a lot of time playing around with the A Minor Pentatonic Scale. We spent a lot of time focusing on what my instructor calls "The House" which is on the E,B,G strings centered on the 9th Fret.
This is both my first attempt at playing with a backing track, and at playing notes rather than chords. I think some of it even sounds kinda ok.
Great job. Really good chord changes for only playing a couple of weeks and I love the Strat..
Thank you so much.
For fun, listen to the sound cloud link in the post immediately above yours. and please be gentle
I'm a step ahead of you LN I already have and I think you are doing quite well for just starting out, stick with it.
Nice, man! I'm not too far behind you. Keep at it and more stuff will come and it gets a lot more fun. A year or so ago I wanted to learn "Brushfire Fairytales" by JJ but the bar chords just weren't happenin'. Now that my hand and finger strength are there, I gave it a try a again and actually got it.
Muscle memory eventually kicks in and every chord starts to get easier. Practice, practice, practice.
Sounds good. What did you use for a baze track?
- This is the backing track (attributed in the description on Soundcloud as well.)
Great job for only a few weeks. And that's a sweet looking Strat.
If you have any interest in rockin' blues/country grooves, this guy puts out some very well done backing tracks. Unlike a lot of backing tracks that can be too thin and weak, they have some substance to them, but without being too busy, so there's plenty of space to improvise over them. He has several that are very similar 12-bar patterns, but in different keys, and tempos, so they're great for getting comfortable and familiar with different areas of the fretboard, in an extremely common 3-chord pattern, so messing with these would be time well spent.
BTW, lately I've been using these for getting comfortable with these patterns/positions, while learning to play the bass.
