Hello everyone,

My name is Terry

Recently started Learn & master,

Quick question  are we suppose to memorize the song's and play along with the jam cd's or 

continue using sheet music to jam along with the cd's ?

If the latter at what point should song's be memorized to play along with the cd's ?

@T. W.  Hello, Terry! Welcome to the forum and the course! In the beginning, memorizing the music is not the point. It's about developing basic hand skills and familiarity in playing guitar from printed music. Steve expects a student to be referring to the printed music as they work their way through playing along with the jam tracks. Being able to play a song from memory will be a happy side effect of sufficient practice, but is never a requirement for progressing through the sessions.
