Usually, when i finish playing guitar and take my shower, any callouses that I’ve built up on my fingertips just sort of slough off. They didn’t slough off today!!! My callouses are staying! This is good!
Now, someone tell the rheumatoid arthritis in my right hand to stop being a pain in the finger. ;-)
I want to sing with with a guitar accompaniment. I love this song and it’s really good for my voice. The problem is learning the chords. Now, the chords themselves aren’t too bad, but it’s all the moving from one to another. Well, wait a second. The chords are not all that easy, but i can play them. I just don’t think I make the changes as quickly and as well as I need to.
Hmmm – I will try it, but I dont’ have a lot of hope for this one. On the other hand, I do think I can work out “Hurt”. ever since Johnny Cash recorded it, I think I can do it.
For you guitar wannabees like me. Check out UltimateGuitar.com. they have a lot of songs with chords and tabs. They also have a lessons section to learn how to play better! Great resource.
I’m okay. Not so bad that people cringe, but not nearly good enough. I play adequately for folk music. What I lack in skill, I make for with chutzpah. I’ll play regardless. If it’s right, I’m very happy. If it isn’t, I’m annoyed at myself, but I’ll play anyhow.
What I need to do is practice often enough so I don’t lose my callouses and can play a barred F chord on the seventh fret without it sounding like my cat using my guitar for a scratching post.
