Yiğitalp Dikmen Hi, i find a mistake on the tabs, 4th measure’s last note 5th string fret 7 and 8 th measure’s 5th string fret 9 these are false, true note’s are 4th measure 6th string fret 7 and 8th measure 6th string fret 7 😊

Jon Bird Any tips on working with the strum hand to gain accuracy when playing faster? Working my way through the intermediate lessons now and I do your etudes to warm up and practice with but I'm noticing that my hand flails around a little bit if I try to go too fast too quickly. Just stick with slow at first and add more and more speed as I can play it perfectly is basically the only way isn't it? Been a fan of A7X and covering you guys since the start Syn so these lessons were a dream come true for me!
