As I’m sure, a few of you have gotten a little familiar with me. There is a few of you that always reply on my posts, or always respond to questions I may have, which have ALWAYS been positive, and what I feel, honest responses. All of which I appreciate greatly. So here’s the deal, I’ve been playing since this last August. A mix of acoustic and electric. Practicing my scales, chords, efficiency, and proper technique. I’ll listen and somewhat learn licks. But as far as songs go, I’ve only really worked on one. Brown eyed girl by Van Morrison. Which I got down...meh...fairly decent at best. It definitely helped tremendously with transitioning my chords. But other than that, I just really have no actual motivation to learn songs. I may mess around for 20-30 minutes with a sing lesson on YouTube, but rarely dedicate any more time after that. Backing tracks. I also rarely put on a backing track and try to work on improvising over backing tracks. With all that being said, I still work on playing music. Strumming you ideas in my head, blues type licks/riffs, improvising. I do know I am getting better. I actually got a really good compliment from an older fellow at GC last week after he heard my messing around on a guitar I wanted to check out. Simply put, he has been a professional musician in the area for 50 years, and he asked me how long I had been playing, when I told him, he says I sounded really great for how long I’ve been playing and keep it up. So am I wrong in my approach? Ultimately, I really don’t care too much “right or wrong” as I am still having fun and enjoying myself. I just wanted to see if anyone else had started out like this. As always, thank you guys in advance!
