    Finding information on a guitar

    So I have an Ibanez Artwood series acoustic guitar that I got way back around 2000 when I was in high school. I'm hoping to find out the exact model that I have. I looked for a serial number and there is a number string stamped inside the body of the guitar, but googling that comes back with...

    Stick to intro or progress through song

    Thanks. I think I'll take it in sections while working on the transition. It's easy to get overwhelmed with anything by Zeppelin because the songs are long and Jimmy is being Jimmy. 😄

    Stick to intro or progress through song

    So, I'm much more confident with the transition from intro to main theme in "Going to California". I know it, I just gotta get the muscle memory. So now I'm wondering should I progress through the rest of the song while still working on getting the transition up to record speed or should I get...

    Can't play with recording

    I just realized that I think that's what I did for the intro without realizing it. Once I got the pattern down I just tried to play it as fast as I could. Once I played with the metronome I realized I was going much faster than the recording. Maybe that's why it came easier. Thanks for the tip.

    Can't play with recording

    I'm so frustrated. I've gotten the second part of Going to California up to the speed of the recording. Checked it with a metronome. But when I try to play along with the recording it's like my fingers just stop working. Is it just a mental block? How do I get past it? I can play the intro with...
