Topic: frustrated in ohio
ok, i know, i know, i know what i will hear.....time is the answer. problem is this. there are times when i think i am doing ok. playing about 9 months or so now. late 40's. late to the guitar game. anyway, i strum songs ok but then sometimes it just sounds like crap. no better way to describe it. my simple chord changes get muted or i suddenly struggle with them. the easiest chords suddenly become foreign to my fretting hand...my strumming patterns all of a sudden sound like a retarded chimp trying to pound open a coconut. just frustrated i guess. i am in lessons. just recently started the finger picking book after completing the rhythm style book. doing ok in that but i went to play some songs off of chordie and wow! what is this thing in my lap??? with the funny shape and wires??
ok...i feel better. thanks for the advice of "keep playing". got it.
