> HEY MAN, I really need your help...

...the thing is, I need you to start progressing faster then ever, but to achieve that I need your help:

* Don't know where to start? Just pm me and we will sort it out directly, I am online every day.

* Join My Army. Sounds aggressive? It is! We can study anything from the most fearsome picking techniques to bombastic songwriting. A medal of honor awaits the brave. Seriously, this is an opportunity for you to get a personalised learning experience...what are you waiting for?!

* Join my next video chat! GMC startpage holds a video chat schedule. We always cover a lot of ground and have fun. Remember that you don't need any previous knowledge, and you can be passive in the chat.

* Jam with me - you will find active collabs here.

* Post a topic on this board, guitar related or not - doesn't matter! You will find that chatting with instructors boosts your motivation to practice.

* You haven't missed my latest video lessons, have you?

* Finally I want to tell you a secret. Nah I changed my mind - pm me instead ;)

Hi Gabriel,

I'm practising the song and almost all the chords are going well because I already practised those in the exercise you gave me wink.gif
The only chord that is still kinda hard is the Bminor. Also I can't play the chords in the right tempo because it takes me too long to switch from chord to chord, but it's getting better.

Thanks smile.gif

Sorry again for being late. Internet isn't working since thursday (perfect timing wink.gif)
But I managed to upload it now using my mobile phone. If I'm right then those are the chords I have to practise for the song.
I find the B minor very difficult and the C is also a little difficult still.

Hi Leen! Good job! It's great to see you changing chords smoothly! Your hands look comfortable with the different finger positions and from what I can hear, all the strings sound clear on each of the chords. Congrats! smile.gif

Now that you can play all the chords from the song, you could start practicing the rhythm (right hand strumming). You could start staying on one chord as a loop to get used to the right hand motion, then slowly start to add chords. You can for example play two chords as a loop keeping the rhythm, in order to get used to the different chord changes.

Are you in?

Hi Gabriel,

Thank you!! Happy to hear that the practise has some result biggrin.gif
I'm definitely in, already practising the strumming pattern. Shall I practise for two more weeks and then put up another video?

Hi Gabriel,

I will post a video this Thursday smile.gif It takes a little bit longer than expected because I'm not so happy with my progress so far, so I would rather practice for another few weeks wink.gif
