O this is a very cool topic! My dad is an incredible guitarist and music was always in my family. He started teaching me my 1st chords when I was 10 but I didn’t take much of an interest in it. When I started hearing more pop songs that I wanted to sing and play guitar at the same time, I started asking him to help me learn the chords for it. That was around when I was 11. However when I was 12 years old my sister died. I began writing poetry to help cope with my loss but it never seemed like the poetry was enough. I started trying to write songs with the handful of chords that I knew. And from that moment on it just bloomed. I saw actually have some of those poems 🙂
Don’t forget guys! Join me live today at 3:00 p.m. CST to show off your homework! You don’t have to and it’s completely optional. But we always have loads of fun when we do these kinds of things. I would love to see some of you there!
Ultimately you would want to start the pattern on an upstroke. If you started on an upstroke and alternate pick 4 times you would end on a down stroke thus being able to economy pick to the next string. At least that’s what my thought would be 🙂
