Just popping in to say that it’s 1 year ago today that I started my subscription to the JG songs app and got my guitar journey going for real.
I haven’t been active much on the forums these last few months, but I’m still here and still playing guitar.
My practice routine has slipped away from me a bit, I seem to have shifted into a mode where I’m playing guitar to relax at the end of the day, rather than really pursuing improvement. That’s just where I’m at right now. But I think I will kick the practice back into gear at some point.
I want to say thank you again to Justin and his team for publishing all the great lessons and of course, to everyone here on the forum who have been so helpful and positive about my progress so far.
Happy guitarversary I’m the same, I’ve barely looked at my practice sheet for a good while the guitar has become a relaxation aid more than anything lately. As long as you’re having fun tho, that’s what matters
Happy Guitariverary. Im right behind you at 11 months and Im finding myself doing the same thing - looking at practice as a wind down activity lately. Maybe a year is a common time for players to find a different kind of joy in playing, versus being in sponge mode all the time. Congrats on your progress, looking forward to seeing what else you achieve as you move on in the courses.
Congrats Brendan! You’ve had a mega year so enjoy and feel proud
I’ve been free-wheeling with just song exploration for almost 5 months now I think, nothing wrong with it at all and in many ways it’s developed other skills way ahead of what I “should” be able to do, barres in particular.
I’m lucky with A shape that I can do the A mini barre with my pinky quite well, third finger not so much! A minor shape is the only one that can be a little hit and miss and C major is nigh on impossible, although it doesn’t seem to come up too much luckily!
