Beginner warning ! lol

I’m still learning theory, various picking/strumming techniques. This is an original ? (Idk what to call it)
This year has been crap. I had this little melody in my head and tried my best to translate it into guitar with my limited skill and knowledge.
Y’all excuse my weird movements. Back surgery is a bitch. I constantly move and shift position now to get comfortable which I know definitely affects my playing. I try so hard to concentrate on what I’m doing but my body takes over and I start moving around ALOT.
 
Love it! Your movement and strumming looks pretty smooth and I loved the transition from fingerpicking to strumming. Also great melody.
And don't be sorry for being a beginner or making yourself comfortable. We're here for the music :)
Ps. Beautiful guitar.

Thank you so much for the kind words ! It’s just kind of frustrating for me when I can hear something in my head but can’t quite translate it it 100% into my guitar because I don’t know that much hahaha. But, I’m sure I’ll get there !
And I absolutely adore this guitar ! It was a gift for my birthday from the husband after the bridge pins broke on the ancient acoustic fender I was trying to play 😭

Well, I play since 2015 and could not get any melody transcribed to guitar lol. But no point in not trying :)

Sounds great, love the look of the guitar too!

If your back bothers you while playing you could try out a classical position. It's supposed to be better for your back. It worked for me but I haven't gotten used to it yet.
