First in. Epic lesson. As a grade 3 beginner this one has a load of stretch targets in it for me but as a life long Greenday fan I’ll be happy to work it. Right now just trying to get my head into the push and the accents. At this strumming speed I’m finding if I actually try to count out the beats it’s never gunna happen. I almost have to slow it right down to where I can count it and get it right but when speeding back up it needs to be ingrained and automatic. Does that sound about right?

Sounds right however I wouldn’t kill myself over counting in full speed, count when it’s slower to engrave the rhythm into your brain and at full speed it should become automatic you should feel it :slight_smile:
