Baby Steps... 27 seconds of the rhythm section of AC/DC's Back In Black

It was a little wobbly, I felt a little awkward, but you know what?? I'm practicing, I was feelin' it, so I did it! Put some of those chords I've learned to use and went for it. I can't wait to see what I can do in a few months. :)

EDITED to add: I swapped it out with a take I was a lot happier with!
That's a great start! The first time you went a little off as far a timing is concerned but after that you really locked in the groove and you nailed it!

We all started like that. What makes a difference is practicing, repeating, practicing, repeating.. And a good advice, I hated it at first, but practice with a metronome. Or a bpm click. Very doll at 1rst, but you will improve your rythm skills quickly. :p

Great job

Yesss, I've heard a metronome/click is incredibly useful! It'll be interesting integrating those into my practice sessions. Thanks so much for the feedback!!
 
Sounding great so far! 🤟 When you hit your D chord, try and see if you can either aim for the D string to start your strum or block the Low E & A string with your left hand thumb - this will allow you to get a good attack on the chord without worrying about hitting the extra open notes 😊 I'd also try muting the strings between chords with your right hand as well as your left, as you can change your chord shapes quicker & cleaner if you don't have to use those fingers in the left to stop the open strings 👌 hope this helps!

I was wondering if it was better to mute with the right hand as well!! So that's extremely helpful, thank you so much 😄
