When I bought my new Seagul guitar around about oct-nov I think, I did it with the idea of attempting to learn to fingerpick songs. I definately underestimated the learning curve. I started with Justin’s “Finger Style for beginners” and just attempted to get over all the hurdles I came across which were so so many.
Anyway, this is literally the first attempt at making through the entirety of a song.
I probably shouldn’t have picked such a long song, or left out a verse or two, but didn’t. It is loaded with errors and issues that I will be addressing. There are many apparent errors and flubs this song (warning). One thing I encountered during this 3-4 months is how difficult it is to sing when fingerpicking. It began nearly impossible. Just way too many balls in the air. Also I have a new respect for the precision fingerpicking demands. Of which I have a long way to go.
This will be a long slow journey, getting to the point where the fun outwieghs the effort put it but I look forward to tryinng to improve. I know it will be slow. But heck, I’m retired
Any comments criticisms welcome. I know how error loaded this is. But still welcome any and all feedback.
