whats up? im bruno, 16 years old from brazil! im honestly not sure what to put here but i wanted to introduce myself and stuff.
i started picking up my dad’s guitar to try and learn like 6 or so months ago and searched for vids, i imediatley found Justin’s beginner playlist wich i loved, im currently at grade 2 module 11 i think…i did write like 3 songs since then but they arent that good lel.
well it still good to be here! c:
i guess its possible but seems way too fast……6 months into grade 2 mod 12 already. slow down.
honestly yeah, its hard for me to gauge wether or not i should reeeally move on, also i just realized its actually 4 months good god- either i am not exactly judging my skills well or i ajust learn that fast wich is very unlikely, or im just impatient lol
now that i think about it im gonna revise some of the things from previous modules to see if i mispracticed something or did it poorly-
how fast are your one minute change exercises and chord perfect changes? how many songs do you know from memory?
on the one minute changes i can do most chords in like 0 or so changes per minute or even more on some chords.
err i dont really remember on the chord pefects much but i think it was 30 average aswell… i didnt note them down since i thoght the site saved by when you input the changes at the end of each pfc.
now songs that i know from memory are a few, but its really just beacause i cant really find anything i wanted to learn. i just counted and its only 6 from what i remember, i think i should’ve been noting wich songs i actally remember
ok i need to definetly revise some things
wait no- i mean to say 30 lol
ok, 30 is like the bare minimum. as far as the songs, learn what he gives you to start out with as they mount in difficulty with each mod. you can add in stuff you like later.
alrighty ill do that, thanks! im definetly finding out more songs i want to learn, andalso the ones that he is recommending so ye
Welcome Bruno @brunohermes1! I’m a Grade 2 beginner as well…don’t worry if you went a bit quickly. In my experience (limited as it is) we beginners often get “just good enough” at something to move on. When I got through all the Grade 2 modules, I began consolidation. For me, consolidation has been going back - even to Grade 1 - and revisiting each skill. It’s really fun - much more fun to approach it the second time around, and much easier to improve too. I learned songs that I skipped the first time through, and was able to add a couple embellishments that I couldn’t do the first time through. Have fun on your journey, and don’t be shy about sharing your experiences!
thanks! i am definetly doing stuff like that ye! im currently going through thesongs of grade 1 and and seeing what i can learn/re-learn!
Welcome to the group Bruno.
Welcome here and I wish you a lot of fun
And how fantastic it must be to find this site at the age of 16 and get a kick start with this great instrument, take your time and you WILL be good
Welcome to the community, Bruno!
Take your time, revise and consolidate in between and build a solid foundation - as you intend, I’ve seen. It’s really great you start that early in life.
Wish you lot’s of fun on your journey!
Cheers - Lisa
Hey Bruno, welcome to the community! Great, you got an early start at age 16, a lot of us wish they had started earlier in life, including me ! Enjoy it, stay motivated and whenever you need help, just ask people here! Good luck!
Welcome to the forum Bruno
Hello Bruno, nice to meet you!
It seems you are making good progress. By the time you reach my age (50+) you will be an incredibly advanced guitar player
Wishing you lots of fun, with your guitar and here in the forum
Great to meet you and welcome to the community. Don’t worry about whether you are going to fast or too slow, what’s important is that you are keeping motivated to keep playing. You can go back anytime to review and cover material again, you are the best judge of where your playing needs improving.
Welcome, bruno. I’ve been at this for 9 months and am in Grade 2 Module 10. But I’m a LOT older than you and much slower. still, make sure you’re getting things memorized and not just charging through. Then again, maybe you’re a guitar genius!
