Hello from Japan

Hi there,
I’ve been learning guitar off and on from Justin’s site, app and books since 2018. I’m really good with the open chord changes, but my rhythm and improvising need a lot of work. A hand injury prevents me from doing barre chords, so I need to learn some work-arounds for the F chord, etc. I’ve commented a bunch on lessons, but never visited this part of the site. I’m hoping to learn even more here. :sunglasses::v:t3:


Welcome, Dude, I think fair to say that active participation in the Community adds to learning and the overall experience.

Will it resonate with you if I say ‘The Dude abides, playing guitar here in the JG Community’

Hello The Dude and welcome to the community. :slight_smile:

Hey Dude Welcome.

Plenty of ways around barre chords, just look at the moveable open chords. Them and more. A lots of guidance here if you hit a bump in the road. So just holler.

You’ve come to a great place for all talk, help and support on learning guitar.
And a bit more besides.
