  1. Hey Amy, thanks... i will continue playing like this
  2. I know the notes on the fretboard very good but i don’t know or my theory knowledge is sufficient... i just followed the first lesson and i see that he goes fast, For example: the bluesform in different keys is easy but in the part of the licks out of the chord form he does not explain what he is doing with his picking hand. So doing what he does is difficult...
  3. Hello everyone, i am following the main course and i am in session 13. Is this a good starting point to begin the blues course or is this to early and is it better to finish the main course first? Grtz
  4. Tomorrow I 'm gonna start session 3. yehaaa It took me several months to get the exercises up to speed, especially the jazz chords but I am finally there! I enjoy the challenges and I wonder if it will take that long again to finish the next session... So goodbye session 2 and session 3... here I come!!! greetings from Belgium
  5. Hi Maria, i have a question for you. The 00-15 is a guitar that i really want for some years now. One day it will be mine when my budget allows me to . You have yours for 4 months now so you are a little experienced with that instrument. How is the playability? And would you recommend it for fingerstyle? Is it as good as i read in many reviews? Greetings from Belgium
  6. Thanks for the answer, i am happy that there are other people playing this way. Like i said, it just feels so much more comfortable. 🙂
  7. If i sit low in my couch then a foot rest isnt necessary but if i sit on a chair then i use the foot rest for my left foot. And yes i can strum very comfortably that way. I hope too that steve see this post and give me an answer 🙂
  8. So you wouldnt dissuade this way of playing?
  9. i have this question: When I started playing the guitar I got never used to it when the guitar was on my right leg. It was like I couldn't hold it in the same position. It always felt better when it was between my two legs like you see in classical guitar. I hold it almost the same however, the arm is not so high like you see in classical guitar. Now I play like this on acoustic and electric(fingerpicking and flat picking) but I don't see many people play this way. should I continue to play like this or wil it become a disadvantage? For me it feels much more comfortable...
  10. hey, thanks for the reaction but that's not the case :) The 0 stands for open strings so in the example you made there is nothing to fret with the left hand. Most of the exercises and the song house of the rising sun are simple: thumb for the bas and finger 1 "th string finger 2 second string and finger 3 first string... but in the song cannon in D Is that not the case. Steve use his thumb all over the place :)
  11. the tab shows me how to play with the left hand but it don't show the left hand fingering. Sometimes steve plays the second or third string with his thumb, sometimes with his index finger... that's where my problem is. it is hard to follow his picking hand. i wanna practice the song correct but i have to know what to do with my picking hand
  12. Hello, i have a question about canon in D. The fingering for the left hand is very well explained and i have no problem with that but i find it difficult to follow what Steve is doing with his right hand. Is it the intention that i do the exact same fingering with the picking hand or is it the intention to find out what works best for me with those fingers? grtz
  13. Starting session 10 today... All i did was playing finger style (alternating bass deltablues...) before i started this learn and master course so i don't expect a lot of troubles in this session. I started the Learn and Master Fingerstyle course a few weeks ago and i am ready to move on to session 2 in that course. I don't know about you folks but i don't really like the plectrum... Just for improvisation stuff maybe and soloing but i play with it because i wanna follow the L&M course and a I think that every guitar player should have a good basic with the plectrum too. What i reaaaaly like is plucking the strings When i finish the L&M course i will follow the blues course but i think i will always prefer finger style on acoustic.
