I tried a new song yesterday and was surprised to discover that I could play the song at speed without looking at the fretboard and my fingers just automatically went to the proper chord shape.
Yesterday was my 6 month anniversary of playing guitar and when I started I thought it would be a year or two before I would be able to play chords without thinking about it, so I’m pleasantly surprised. It’s only 4 chords so far (D A G Em), so many more to learn, but it felt good to achieve this milestone.
These little victories are what keeps us going. Congrats.
Good stuff Craig. That’s pretty solid progress for 6 months mate. Now onto the next 4 chords
Congrats! It’s the best feeling when you can do something that seemed so hard at first. Great job!
Ahhhh, yes, such a magical feeling!!! Justin’s teaching ways and the right amount of practice seems to advance players at an excellent rate!! Congrats!!
Congrats, that’s great progress! Things like that motivate to keep on!
Hell yes! Isn’t it a sweet feeling when suddenly there’s a payback for all the steady effort.
Excellent progress Craig!
My guess would be that you’ve been practicing.
And practice does make perfect.
Congrats on your progress and keep on truckin…
I was having a lot of issues with G to D and D to C for a specific song I was working on, so I would speed 5 to 10 mins of every practice on the C and D chord shapes (pressing releasing, changing which finger I put down first, hand on knee between chords, etc) I soent 22 days to nail the D chord and still working on the C chord (I stopped a week ago at 29 days, need to get back to it).
Yes, practice does make perfect.
