We all have those plateau’s from time to time, you just need to battle on through them.

Hi y’all. I’m keeping a log (in Excel) of progress. Prob spending too long on it rather than practise!
I find following Nitjus is helpful (Justin on left-hand)
It prodded me into ‘reversing’ some bad habits, such as holding thumb over on the neck, rather than behind it. Good muscle exercise for future barre chords.
Regards to the forum :grinning:

Hi Bruno,
Dave from Rhode Island, USA here. I’m also 63 and have been doing Justin’s course for a couple of years now. Progressing slowly (just finishing grade 2) but enjoying the ride. Keep it up and have fun!

Hello Bruno.
Welcome to JustinGuitar and the Community. It’s great you have found Justin’s lessons, he offers structure and a sure path to follow from the very beginning. Thousands and thousands have learned using his lessons. Thanks for taking a subscription to the App. It is definitely worth checking the matching lessons on the website. All have additional information, some downloadable content and each has a link to a dedicated discussion topic here in the community.
If you need any help with a lesson specific question or with any general guitar learning question then do not hesitate to ask. There are many good folk here who will happily offer help and encouragement to those coming up behind them on Justin’s Beginner Courses. They embody and carry the pay-it-forward ethos we have nurtured for many years in our community. There are many old hands too who have years and (hopefully) a bit of wisdom they can bring as they give their support to those hitting the road blocks - which we all do.
It’s worth checking out all the other old dogs too:

Just ask if you need anything.
Cheers :slight_smile:

Thx Richard. Currently battling the F-chord ‘demon’ but otherwise progress is good.
I feel the good vibes and warm support from this forum - even tho I haven’t engaged much in it, it helps believe me! :sunglasses:

Hey Bruno plateaus are pretty common, you just have to ride the storm. Good thing is there is a wealth of experience and helpful folk here, who can give you support and guidance. Welcome.
