Hi @Richard_close2u , I have a question about where to most appropriately post…if I record more of the blues studies (or other pieces that are lesson-specific).

@jsgreen
James I would suggest here or if you want some an initial low key entrance the Beginners Sub-thread. That will solicit feed back form a wider audience. Ideally the lesson threads should be for questions relating to the lessons, seeking advice etc. I am sure @Richard_close2u or @LievenDV will correct me if that is not the case.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

Hi James.
Community Recordings is the overall category.
Post in a sub-category.
AVOYP is the best place.
You are beyond beginner are you?
Lesson topics really are for questions and answers rather than recordings.
Regards, Richard :slight_smile:

Perfect, Richard, thank you for the clarification.

Beyond beginner? I don’t think so, my next step in the course is to consolidate Grade 2 (and I might have a quick pass through Grade 1 to make sure I’ve got it all captured).

One concern I have about my progress is the lack of grade 1 and 2 songs I actually know - that’s what a lot of my consolidation will be spent on fixing.

Thanks so much for this @Richard_close2u, now we have something to point to when subtle hints are ignored :grinning:

My bad - I assuned that as you had learned some of the blues studies you were beyond Grades 1 & 2 at least.

Oh!
There’s only one response I can make in that case!

Learn songs, learn songs, learn songs.

And congrats James - you are the first to elicit the use of my mantra in the new Community.

Well said @Richard_close2u ; it has been a bit frustrating for some, the ‘look at me how good I am’ thing doesn’t go down well with folks if they don’t offer help to those who aspire to their level of skill - give and take is the way to keep this community how it’s always been!

Hi, so I’m building up the courage to post my first video of myself playing. But I’ve noticed that most people also sing whilst playing, which I simply can’t do (probably a good thing as I’m not a good singer). I’m just wondering if it’s ok to be playing along to the song recording instead or is that a no- no?

@ijukes playing along is 100% fine. Go for it. :slight_smile:

Thanks, Richard. What does “paying it forward” mean?

@davidbollen
David, I am sure this was picked up from the 2000 film of the same name. Google has this definition which reflects our Community ethos

The simplest way to define “pay it forward” is that when someone does something for you, instead of paying that person back directly, you pass it on to another person instead .
