so not sure where to put this but two days in a row now i’ve tried to play the song practice there is no sound. I know my volume is on because the previous videos in the practice session works… also the song practices in the previous modules worked also… So not sure why this is happening, any advice welcomed.

I have the same issue.

Hi @Dianez32 do you mean the video lesson for this? I can hear it when it is on so the sound is fine.

Cheers :blush:

Hi Richard, No I’m talking about the practice the songs… that you up load the module practice to the “practice” part of the website. You know what I mean? So the practice has several items to practice, and they are timed and you put your count if you practice chord changes. In the practice there is a 10 min song strum practice… I see the chords and the bead as the song goes along but I can’t even hear the song being shown. The other practice modules with the practice songs… I can hear it… This module it just doesn’t work.
So to be clear the video lessons are fine. So I don’t know if i’m not describing the problem correctly.
I see that “THEMDTREEMAN” is having the same problem. I don’t know what the problem is, because I can hear the other karaoke song practices… fine.

Thanks for the reply

so see if you can go here, and click on the Songs with 3/4 stuck chords. :slight_smile:
Let me know if you can hear it . Thanks

Practice still does not work with the( song practice with 3/4 stuck chords) I know how to edit it.
I really wanted that song practice, I see it going up the screen with the chords strum but no sound.
Thanks Diane

Hi Diane, now I remember and understand.
That particular video had issues at the upload stage that only became known about after the fact.
It is a known issue but is on a long ‘fix’ list that Justin has. I think he has said he would need to film the entire video again.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

The 3 song practice thing? That you strum along? So that is a video? Hmmmm ok lol
The module 8 videos all work great… just this one practice segment from the upload to the dashboard practice portion is the problem.
Thanks for looking into it though.
I appreciate your time with this.

No worries. In the grand scheme of things this one small bug will prove inconsequential as you progress. :slight_smile:

Exactly I just have been using Justin’s song app for 10 min to practice. Thanks again😊

I’ve been following along and practicing fairly well but when I get to the play songs using the stuck 3&4 chords I am lost. The suggested songs I am not at all familiar with. I’m a country boy and these songs are all rock and roll. I do remember Browned Eyed Girl from back in the day and I think that would work for me but I can’t find tabs anywhere. I did find tabs that showed only the 3&4 chords going up an down the neck. I think the chords are basically G C G D G C G D and I suppose I could make that work. Also Is the strumming pattern the 8 note strumming pattern for all these songs. I see there is an app that I guess works for this but that requires a cell phone which I don’t have. Thanx

I’ve been on this lesson for about seven weeks already! Is that normal?

Welcome to the forum Eliezer. That would depend on how
many hours you practice a day/week. Everyone learns at
different rates and everyone has different amouts of time
to practice.

Justin has a song tutorial video for Brown Eyed Girl, which may help. He talks about using open chords, but you can substitute with the stuck 3&4 chords. The recommended strumming pattern is ‘old faithful’.

Thanks gsix14, That is certainly more easy to follow along with. I was about to give up on this lesson but back at it now!

The completion criteria for this module are that we should have learned at least 2 songs that use the new Stuck 3&4 Chords and ideally played one all the way through. Does this mean that we need to play at 100% tempo of the recorded song versions? I’m using the Beginner Songs app and playing along with Brown-Eyed Girl at 60% tempo. Thanks!

Full tempo on some songs might be a big ask.
I would equally advise that 60% is not yet a sufficient tempo to think of moving on.
Choose some other songs if those you are playing are too quick also.
Hope that helps.

Cheers :smiley:

I have the same problem as Diane. Strange that everything else works and there is this one glitch. It makes it a bit difficult to practice.

is the OMC AND PFC of G(4finger) To normal D or Dsus4?
