Has really been over a year!?! life is getting on at a rate.
So what have I done....
Bought the new guitar. a Eko acoustic travel. Love it and after trying a few guitars can feel the difference playing it to others.
Tried with Justin's beginner course again this time tracking my progress through notes. Fell off that again as I seem to have been doing the basic stuff forever and I still can't play a song.
Lessons...been to two guitar teachers both seem very similar in approach. I tell them I want to play songs and the types of music and they just tend to say just learn the songs. No real progressive course of pathway. I get a feeling that they have plenty of young students that have bags of time to devote to practice so they can't really help much until I have put in enough time.
Gaming...gave it up. It was easy to spend free time doing so decided to hang up my controller and pickup the guitar more.
I am about to hit 40 and I really have got to pull my finger out. I want this, and I also want to be around a peer group who also love music.
I think the Championship is the only way, have to fight through the time restraints I have with work and family and just get my best effort on that one song a week.
If there is anyone in the Suffolk area PM me. Kind of getting board of telling people about Rocksmith and them looking at me funny.
