Hi Gab, thanks for the video. I think I am really going to like this format. I’m a 63 year old man with arthritis in my hands and fingers. About 25 years ago I learned a few chords and dabbled with guitar. Never got anywhere. Then two years ago I gave it another try. Arthritis and all. I can play a few three fingered chords but the ones that are difficult I play with two chords. Some people would call them cheater chords. At this time in my life I don’t care if they are cheater chords. I’m not out for perfection I just want to play. As a result in the past this held me back. I just want to play and there are many different ways to play. My hands and fingers have loosened up the past months as I continue to play more.

Also in the past it was so confusing. Do I start with an acoustic or electric? Do I strum or do I fingerpick. Do I play with a pick or without? What style do I choose?
So many things that just add to the confusion.

I really want to learn the blues. Love it. I pretty much like any genre of music. I’m currently listening to Rory Block, Santana, SRV, Eric Johnson etc. Hope this helps. I’ll
Work on a video for you. I am playing on an electric guitar. I love the sound of an acoustic but the size of the electric works much better for my arthritis and body size.

There is no one correct way to start. You can chose the one that is most natural for you. The decision can be based on your influences or on whatever is easiest for you.

Hi Doug! Thanks for the video!!

The audio and video quality is perfect for this purpose. I can see that you have a good sense of rhythm and that you already can make all those chords sound good.

I'd like to see you getting used to the pick so we can get into some blues rhythms and riffs.

Please check out this lesson to learn the best way to hold a pick:

https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Using-a-Guitar-Pick/

And then, start working on this lesson: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Acoust...low-Blues-in-E/

You can learn the first 2 parts, and record a video at your comfortable tempo so I can check how it's going.

What do you think?
