Old Swanner you told me on reddit to join you. Although you posted it about a month ago and I'm just seeing it now.... here I am hoping you can help.
(Here is the original post you replied to)
I've been playing guitar since February 3rd of last year and I still cant play a single damn song. I use yousician and rocksmith and you tube. I generally only have 2 or 3 hours after work to play approximately 3-4 days a week and sometimes practice before work as well. I can easily play the basic chords (e,em,a,am,c,c@9,d,dm, f, g and some power chords) and switch between them with some ease but not with speed. I practice my pentatonic and diatonic scales daily for a warm up. I can play some basic riffs but that's about it!My strumming sucks although I try to do Erich Andrea's strumming pattern practice a couple times a week. My strumming is getting better but just at a painfully slow pace. I seem to always lose the strum once I 'get going'. I was going to a guitar teacher once or twice a week for a couple months but I really wasnt progressing more then I would on my own and also needed to start saving money...What am I missing guys?
Here is to hoping you can make a guitarist out of a lifelong wanna be.
