My first playing | beginner | ear-bleed warning

Congratulations on your first AVOYP posting, Rinka.

That was some wonderful playing and singing. I really enjoyed your fingerstyle.

Try not to let things that happen in your life side track you from your goals. I find guitar is a real escape from the issues that life can throw at you.

Wait, let me get this right - you bought the guitar in the summer of 2022 and had a 5 month lay-off, so that’s only just over a year of playing, and you can sound like THAT?

Seriously, that sounds amazing Rinka, whatever you do, don’t give it up. Ever!

Thank you for the encouraging words :face_holding_back_tears: I will try my best not to get myself pause on guitar again. I played ukulele for quite a while before getting my guitar though, I didn’t realize until now that skills like sing&play at the same time and simple finger plucking pattern require a lot practice too when learning guitar from start without exposure to other string instrument.

Thank you for the upbeating words :blush:
I am terrible at handling stress and getting over the anxiety caused by it. It can completely paralyze me. I really hope I will not slack off again in the future : )

I thought the same thing and i can t help it but the title bugs me
You re clearly NOT an absolute beginner , a beginner yes ( grade 2 at least ) but not absolute …
Your video and playing was awesome , already playing barre chords as if its an easy thing , its clearly great !
But a real absolute beginner can be dishearten if he thinks this is the level you should have when starting playing guitar :confused:
Keep on learning and have confidence in yourself !
You’re doing greater than you think it seems

You’re right, I changed the title to [beginner] instead. I certainly do not wish that people get disheartened. it was very considerate of you to notice it.
I am clearly not a confident person :face_with_spiral_eyes: thank you for the kind words

Hi Rinka,

I would just echo what all the others already said: Definitely no ear bleeding here, it was a treat.
Given the time you’re learning guitar with a long break in it, that was a terrific performance you can be really proud of. :slight_smile:

Hope you keep on finding joy in playing guitar. It may help you to push through these tough times - and of course I hope that better days are coming your way soon! :slight_smile:

Take care.

Cheers - Lisa

That was way better than I expected from your post title. Your playing and singing were really good for someone who has had a 5 month lay off. Look forward to your next video.

That was lovely. I think your progress is impressive given the short length of time you’ve been playing (and the time away from the guitar). You kept a constant rhythm while playing and singing; that’s not an easy thing for many beginners. Well done.
