I had a couple of weeks of practicing A and D, and last week trying to go back and forth between the two. I will be traveling this week, so will not have the instrument. I thought this would be a fine time to put the guitar in the shop to have its setup. I was told the action is a little high, so he will lower that for me. The neck is in good shape, as are the bridge and nut. It will be returned with new Martin strings. The wait list is up to 2 weeks.
A question for the group, are there any exercises I can do in the next couple of weeks that I can work on, before I had to resume the A to D routine? Thank you.
When I don’t have my guitar handy but am listening to music, I strum my “air guitar” along with the song & try to listen to the guitar part so I can figure out the strumming pattern. Also listen to the song structure ie the intro verse/chorus/bridge outro etc. If it’s a song that I really like, I look up the tab online to see how close I was!
Good luck learning!
