Sandy's Guitar Journey

4 weeks after starting with Justin I published my first video on the old forum. Looking back I can’t believe I had the galls to let anyone view it… but it is, I believe, what has helped me improve. Spotting my mistakes, having others give constructive criticism, getting comfortable facing the camera, and more. So here is my collection of videos published before today starting with the cringeworthy first up to the passable last.

Thanks for sharing your progress through this videos, Sandra. Watching these videos can serve as inspiration and encouragement for all those getting started and asking themselves if they’ll ever get those basics down and be able to play.

Sandy to good to see you starting your catalogue, impressive for a relatively short journey.

I agree David. At first when you start, you sometimes think, is it even worth it? Will I ever be able to play good enough? So practice and perseverance show it’s possible.


You gave me the idea… and it helps when some days nothing seems to work
