Vintage Club 7 with Richard | Fingerstyle

glad to not be the only one who thought we were not allowed to join :rofl:


At least with guitar it’s 45. If you run then veteran status kicks in at 35 :joy:


Yeah, I went to that one, though I ended up having to watch it on my tiny phone. Screen. Still can’t figure out why some of Richard’s clubs work on my laptop and other days, nope, uh-uh, not today!

I sure got lost fast with that lesson though, hopefully this one is more my speed. Guess I better go watch Module 11. Been in Module 10 for forever.

I do run but more as a hobby. 35 is indeed terrifying :open_mouth:.

I’d say that the progression with F in it is just a direction you can head in. In the same way that when we started playing with a pick we got some A, D and E songs under our belts first, it’s probably wise to adopt the same approach to finger picking before trying to add a barre chord!


I’ve been lucky in the F chord “cheat” department. One of the first songs I tried to play was house of the rising sun. Boy I was foolish in trying this but I didn’t know any better that this was a song to play down the road a bit. Took me years to play one song!!! :crazy_face::rofl::rofl:. Anyways…with Justin in 2 years I’ve excelled beyond a point I only dreamed of!

So I guess my point is that the mini F has been one of the first chords I learned…along with C , D , Em Am…oh it helped kinda in the end. But should have really picked an easier song!!! And life goes on!

Excellent class @Richard_close2u !! So loved it!!!

Rock on!

Thanks for last night excellent intro to finger style, something I am just getting into.

I wrote down the chord progression you mentioned and I didn’t hear what you called it but was in your follow up notes Canon in D Major by Pachelbel which you transposed in to C. I looked at it this morning and did a bit of research and realised it occurs in one of the songs I learning and many others.

Ok with chords in the key but I think I need to pay more attention to chord progressions.

Thanks again.
