Hi Phil!! Thanks for the update!

I think that it’s good to combine your work on 30 great blues with other stuff since that’s a monster lesson.

I also think that setting some sub goals could be positive. For example what about focusing on a shorter section for a while instead of thinking all the time on the whole thing?

While reading your posts I was thinking that maybe seeing this one as an endless lesson can be frustrating. If you divide it in fragments, you can work on other lessons or stuff for a while before getting into the following part.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks Gab,

It's not really frustrating, more daunting but I'm enjoying it and really want to complete it. As you say, it is a monster lesson and harder than learning a full song really because that can be just verse, chorus, bridge repeated. I actually started recording videos of each riff this week (only had time to video the first two though). As I said, I feel it might be better to concentrate on one riff at a time, get it up to speed then work on the next one, then, using the riffs I've got up to speed as a warm up and to get the transitions right.

At the moment this seems to be working, the other thing is, I was rushing, I know, I know, I shouldn't but, I have to fight that so hard as it's in my nature rolleyes.gif I was trying to learn newer riffs while I hadn't completely internalised the earlier ones and even thought they were up to speed, they were very scruffy and I still relied on the TAB. WRONG WRONG WRONG.

The hardest parts are the chordal parts, basically I'm a complete novice with chords and moving them around and playing individual strings of the chord while moving it down the neck is an even bigger challenge for me.

The Ben Higgins thing, if I get time to fit it in I'll have to see how much time it needs, might be a good sub goal, it's only ten days, I've also got Todd's Bootcamp which I really enjoy.

Once work settles down in a few weeks I'll be back on it big style but it's an unavoidable time I'm afraid, I explained to Todd HERE if you want to get the lowdown.

Also, that lesson you said to try and add to my DAILY practise (https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/30-Blues-Greats/) is very hard for me, maybe this might help instead https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/SRV-Chordal-Licks/

Cheers buddy
