Hello from British Columbia Canada eh!
Hello Jeremy, and Welcome to the community .
As I’m a curious person, would you mind telling us a bit more about you and your guitar background ? Have you just started your guitar journey or do you maybe have already some years of experience under your belt? Do you play an acoustic or electric? …?
No problem, if you don’t want to write more at the moment - as I’ve said, I’m just curious .
Hey Jeremy, welcome to the community. Nice to have someone from Canadia reporting in.
Hello and welcome to the community Jeremy.
Hi Jeremy, welcome. In Ontario here.
Welcome to the forum Jeremy. I’m in southern Alberta.
Hope the wild fire aren’t choking you out.
Welcome, Jeremy! Enjoy the ride. This is an amazing community.
Welcome Jeremy, you will have fun here.
Hi Jeremy and welcome to the community. You have come to a great place.
Hello from Montreal - eh! Welcome to the Community, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you need any assistance from Justin’s team.
A bit more about myself?
Well, I’m what’s often called by Justin ‘an advancing beginner.’ I have been playing off and on again since 2005. My skill level is somewhat complicated to explain because I tend to jump around to a lot more advanced things before I probably should, because it’s my learning style that works best for me and it tends to work to my advantage. I am grade 4 in the beginner course, confident with my barre chords now too; yay! lol
I have 5 guitars, 3 electric (fender strat, Gibson les Paul, and my first, a Mark 5), and 2 Accoustic (one of which is an electric Accoustic) one of my Accoustic guitars is a Fender, which is the electric and the other is a Yamaha.
Anything else I can fill you all in on?
Sorry for the late response.
Hi Jermeny ,
And a late welcome from me, … but you weren’t very busy here
It is good to read that you do follow the course from the beginning and continue with it, … and looking past that can of course do no harm at all, … as long as you don’t make it as much/crazy as I did ,. …but my goal is/was something else with learning the guitar than just be good ( i hope that will happen some day ofcourse ),…so all the time that I didn’t spend “usefully” on getting better, I did have a great time and I have the time on my side
Do you now the section AVOYP?
Can’t I say I know that section, no.
Jeremy, welcome to the forum. I started on this site as an advancing beginner also. My barre chords are still a little iffy, so I’m hanging out in Grade 3. It took me a while to know what everyone was talking about with AVOYP (A Video Of You Playing) It is a section in the JG community forum where people learning on the Justin Guitar website post links to videos of them playing a song, both to share with all of us and get some feedback.
I got better with my barre chords by practicing with my acoustic guitar, because it’s more difficult to fret the notes, this improves your grip strength making it easier. It’s something I discovered after I had been playing around with my acoustic half heartedly just for fun. It ended up improving me a lot to my surprise. Now I don’t struggle at all with barre chords lol.
When I switched over to my Fender strat I was amazed at how effortless it was to play the F chord haha.
I’m also somewhere between grade 3 and 4, but because of rhythm and also my changes need improving. I am doing Justin’s new strumming course which is really helping a lot.
Hello Jeremy, from a fellow Canadian in Ontario, eh!
Wishing you the best in your guitar journey,
Thank you Christina! Same to you too!
