very nice, Thank You.
Thanks LJ ... You do a Great job , Sure is a lot of help ..
I am so happy to find this helping others. Yall get comfortable with what youre doing. One thing I have learned over the years is when you learn something new. Like a guitar chord or riff. It gets easier everyday to do. If you record yourself playing today. Play at least 5 or 10 minutes a day. Then record yourself again after a few days or even a week.. You will be amazed by your improvement.
The more you play the faster you will gain confidence. With confidence comes smooth nice music. I had a buddy tell me one time that there is really not a bad note only notes played without confidence. I still find plenty of bad notes , but when you get confidence in what your doing its easily hidden in the mix.
The most important thing is to pick it up and make some noise with it everyday. Even if its only a couple minutes. Leave one by the bed, by the dinner table, just have them around so you dont let life get in the way and forget to play.
Id love to see yall posting some demo videos or songs one day soon. No pressure , just have fun.
Nice, good job!
Thanks you make it more understandable. keep the lessons coming.
now even me will find some right chords! thank u so much
Thanks LJ for taking the time to do this for us. I've already learned a lot. Hope you have a couple more up your sleeve.
Thanks LJ! Your lessons are fun.
Im glad its helping. I can do some more songs and expand a lil more on the neck as we go along . After lesson 5 you should have markers 3, 5, 7, 10, 12,. In order to do some more songs Ill need to do a lil more work with the A thru G chart we started in the last lesson.Ill see if me and my boy can get something done this weekend. Thanks for commenting and letting me know you like them.
Back lurking for lessons, figured I'd sign in to let you know that we do come back. I'm getting the locations down pretty good, slide right in without looking now on some, but still a little choppy on the timing, working on smoothness with the strumming and such. Sometimes I practice these songs and sometimes I just play no song at all, just seeing what sounds good to my ears. Anyway, thanks again for these lessons.
I promise Ill do some more. I have just been crazy at work and I also started 4 new builds!!! Feels good to make some dust again!. As far as timing goes the best thing about these old blues guys I listen too is that they seem to operate in thier own clock. I have never believed in counting like music reading musicians do. And as long as your not playing in a band you can speed up and slow down as you feel it. If you really want to improve the timing start playing with a metronome. I got one for around 20 bucks. U can set it as slow or fast as you need. Or start slow and each day increase it a bit and before you know it everything will fall in line alot better.
Ive already figured out the next song lesson. Im just trying to work it out so I can try to add a lil bit of the riffs into it without making it too difficult.

Hey, do not neglect your own things going on to help other people. Unless of course, someone needs rescued from a burning building or something. Enjoy your builds.
