Hello from Belgium 🇧🇪

Hello all,
I’m Bart, 42 y old from Belgium, Halle to be more precise.
I have an acoustic Yamaha C40 and a Fender Strat with a small Fox amp.
I started my journey with JustinGuitar on 18 Nov 23 and finished Grade 1.
Taking my time now to practice the harder chords with OMC and finger stretching.
But also having a lot of fun in playing all the songs I can play now with the app and the beginner songbook. Hopefully soon I can post a video before I move to Grade 2.

Hey Bart, welcome to the community! OMC made a huge difference to me. For me once I learned my first song all the way through it went from being a chore to being fun. Look forward to hearing more from you

Welkom Bart, from another Belgian! Have fun following Justin’s lessons. Just make sure you’re not rushing things. Better take your time to build a strong foundation than realising afterwards you didn’t take enough time to ingrain everything (5 weeks to finish grade 1 is pretty quick if you had no prior experience - but then again, it also depends on the time dedicated to playing, of corse).

Hi Bart ,
Welcome here and I wish you a lot of fun :sunglasses:
And it’s a good idea to include that video…(even if it is only for yourself), because it mercilessly shows where your areas for improvement lie and accelerates your learning process in an incredibly positive way after the first shock :smile: (That’s how it went for me…and even when I think “I know that song” on the first recording, usually on my looper, I get scared and quickly continue practicing with healthy courage and strength :laughing: )
Greetings,Rogier

Welcome to the fray! What is the best Belgium beer in your opinion? Orval looks like something that I might want to try and try cloning sometime. It leans toward being a pale ale, which is in my wheelhouse. Cheers!

Hello CT!
Best Belgium beer is kind of different for everyone. Colors and tastes you know. :wink:
But I’m also a big fan of Orval! Other ones I like are La Trappe, Westmalle and Triple Karmeliet.
