Congrats on a first post, Ian. I really enjoyed the rendition, both your playing and singing. Certainly no need to be anxious about your playing and singing when participating here in AVOYP or Community Open Mics.

How’s the finger-pocking progressing?

Hi David, I seem to have hit a wall with the fingerpicking, probably just need a couple of easy tunes to get me on the road again. Any suggestions?

Congratulations on your first AVOYP Ian.

I thought it was excellent. Really well played and sung. No need for any anxiety about post stuff.

Ian, my play-grade is not much beyond beginner level, so perhaps not the best to give you feedback and suggestions, but I’ll share what has worked for me.

I have found that uaing a really simple pattern has worked for me viz T M T R with the thumb playing alternate bass notes on the chord. I’ve performed songs like Blowing in the Wind and We Are Going To Be Friends and others. Another that worked out well for me was Mad World using the picking pattern Justin teaches in his song lesson. Those are all pretty simple, not making use of anything too fancy. Keeping the chords and pattern simple helps me to be able to add the vocal.

For something that is beyond me would be Dylan’s Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right. A few people in the Community have performed this one. That’s a maybe one day for me, maybe right for you now?

Thanks for that advice David. I’ll certainly give those a go, much appreciated!

Enjoyed that. Being able to play and sing together is something I’m yet to master.
