I’ve been back playing for about a month and a half now, so probably time to look back and see how well it’s all going. Alright I think.
In an ideal world, I’d have been into about day 34 or 5 by now, but it hasn’t been that way. I’ve had a couple of breaks in that time (Christmas) and haven’t had the guitar with me (maybe I should get one for every house I may spend time in!) but I’ve had a few good days over the period and some decent practice time.
And it’s not been bad actually. I definitely feel like I’ve made some progress. It’s certainly slow, but most certainly progress. Some of what I learnt has come back to me, and going through some of the songs has become easier over time. And I feel a bit more confident in trying songs, and that I might be able to come out the other side with something tangible. Playing through the game has given me a better platform to aid with breaking the song down and practising it. Yes, I realised that’s quite easy with a paper tab as well, but here I can control the speed I play at the difficulty and can have it just keep going without me wandering off halfway through. There’s been a couple of times where it’s been a struggle, nothing’s sounded right and I’ve not been able to get something but happily, not that often.
I still hate chords tho.
