Hello all,

I was wondering if everyone moved through the course sequentially or if anyone skipped around after a certain point through the course?  I'm on the session 6 chords, but a classical guitar kind of fell into my lap, so I started doing some of the basic fingerstyle exercises from session 10 and trying to track down some simple songs.  Also I went online looking for some interesting music books and found some from the group Blackmore's Night, but there's a bunch of stuff I have not covered in the course (such as session 7 and 8 material).  Should I try and tackle them anyway or wait?  I fully intend to finish the whole course, even if I move around a little bit.

Hi Costancr! 

There are so many different directions guitar can take you, its easy to get sidetracked! 

From my experience, you might want to cover the material in sessions 7 & 8, barre chords. You will need barre chords even for fingerstyle, so from what I see they are pretty important. As a matter of fact, session 10 really highlighted the fact that I needed a bit more work on my barre chords! When you start plucking just a single string and its buzzy, well...  for me it was humbling. 

Maybe you can work thru 7 and 8 at the same time as you explore fingerstyle. But I wouldn't skip them right now. Those sessions can take a bit to work thru so getting started would be great!

Steve just this week started a Wednesday Night workout for Barre Chords. It was great! I think the link is posted above... and there is a pdf handout for it. I'm very sure it would be helpful for you to watch! You can watch the first session then join us the next two weeks! 

The most important thing is that you are having fun learning!

@constancr I recommend that you go through the course sequentially as each lesson is designed to build on all those that come before. If you skip ahead you will be missing viral information and skills.

As I undertsand it there is a difference in how Europeans and Americans write sus 2/4 chords. Using the chord of C, Americans write C2 and Csus whereas Europeans write Csus2 and Csus4.

In either case, the 3rd is suspended in favour of (replaced by) the 2nd or the 4th.

As Steve is in the USA expect to see C2 and Csus in his teaching.
