I’m not at all a Coldplay fan, but this song is in one of my beginner guitar mags as an easy fingerpicking lesson. And dammit, it really is. Easy in the sense that it’s just 3 chords and repeats over and over. But not easy for me the forever novice, whose fingers play it perfect one time and fumble the next one. I know I’ve posted about this hurdle before...about how you can play it great then mess up. So allow me to think it through and share my strengths and weaknesses. Sometimes putting it out there can make me hold myself accountable to it. I think the key for me is to play it at a comfortable enough pace to be able to change chords without missing the beat...and ONLY THEN worry about speeding it up. I think that’s my problem, I get the flow going and my fingers automatically start picking up the tempo. I am guessing the way to correct this is with a metronome? Whenever I try that I get more thrown off, but I think that is part of the problem and once I get used to the metronome, it can solve a world of issues for me. Thoughts?
