You guys I couldn’t contain my excitement but to post it on a forum! I have loved this style of guitar since I was a little girl but I couldn’t even begin to wrap my head around the concept of starting to learn it. I have developed a new practice plan and it has been paying off big time! This is seriously the hardest style of guitar I have ever attempted as you have to really stay in the groove of things, and be very quick on your toes and it requires a lot of chord embellishments. I just wanted to be extremely happy about the progress on such a difficult style! I had been playing for about 2 hours and fucking up so much trying to find where the chords were and getting in the groove of things but once I did it was so much fun! I hope you guys enjoy it!! 🤩🤩🤩😸😸😸

Honestly the whole CAGED thing is something I should to put more time into. I understand the system, but my natural instinct is still to stay planted in one spot most of the time.

Nice! Listen to some Brian Setzer. Nobody does this style better than him. It’s all about feel. Gotta swing those 8th notes!

Thank you all so much!
Firsty Lasty – Yeah my cat was quite a character while recording this. There was one time where I randomly felt him flop on my foot and i looked down like “Wth was that?” I think we all have that knack to stay in one spot but man your world really opens up when you break down those other doors!
Calvin – That’s like my least favorite spot haha! I would say my most favorite spot is like 1st fret to 15th fret. Those smaller frets are a bitch to play on
Ailee – Right?! I’m glad it made you feel that way! I’ve always wanted to do a swing dance class before 🙂
Grandmaster Papa Gates – I LOVE Brian! That’s actually where I got into this style of music! My mom would listen to his stuff and eventually she bought me a CD! One of my goals is “Cat On A Hot Tin Roof” 😀 I’ll make sure to swing those 8th notes! That’s a big tip! Thank you 🙂
Sayonil – It is VERY difficult. I’m not going to sugar coat it. This little snippet was one of the hardest things I’ve ever played and the most challenging to come up with 🙂
