After doing the warm-up I went straight onto Friday’s lesson, and practised the chord changes I found it quite easy to go from D to G and reverse.
And going from G to A then A to D and reverse, but coming back from A to G I just could not manage it unless I did it very slowly.
So after trying to get it at 40 BPM for 10 to 15 minutes I moved on to Thursday’s lesson.
I like this lesson because even though I can’t play it at the tempo in the video, I sound like I am playing a tune.
And this is the reason I wanted to play guitar, not to go out and become famous just to be able to pick one up and make a bit of music.
To entertain myself and my family, don’t get me wrong I don’t want to be a closet guitarist I would be happy to play along with others, if only I could find them.
For the last ten minutes of my practise all I did was the G to A and reverse change, even without strumming just get my fingers to do used to the change.
Total practise time 1 hour
