Hey taymana337, i'm a lefty too and i'm at the intermediate stages now. At first it's a bit difficult, having to translate the chordboxes to a left handed version, but the video's are really helpfull, as they give you a mirror image.

If something is especially difficult, i download some lefthanded chordboxes, diagrams etc, and start taking notes. (my chord book, for example. Just left handed chord boxes)

Have a look here: https://leftyfretz.com/

Good luck and have fun!
I'll get it in the end. Just don't give up, that's the key....

Hi,

I recently started working through the beginner course but I don't have a CD/DVD drive on my computer. I am able to find a computer with one, but the files are in a format called CDA which can only be played using the CD itself. This makes the audio completely useless to me, since I can't use it to learn without a CD rom drive. Has anyone else figured out a workaround to this issue?

I probably shouldn't be telling you this, but it's not hard to rip the files to mp3...

On checking my Beginners Coursebook CD 2 for the Blues Lead track I find the disc only contains PDFs of Practice Schedules and J.U.S.T.I.N charts but no tracks. According to the Track Listing at the back of the book it should contain 52 tracks with chords, pentatonic patterns and 12 Bar Blues variations etc

Is there anywhere on Justins site that I can download these tracks?

Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions.

Regards,

WB.

Sorted thanks to an email from Jed.

Anyone else having this issue - the tracks are there they're just not visible in explorer, use a media player and there they are!

Now for some blues practice!:)

Trouble understanding chord progression

Hi guys I've just started learning the beginners songbook and and am struggling to understand what it means if two chords are written closely together. I'm trying to learn common  people.  I would put a picture to try and make more sense of what I mean but if someone does no I would greatly appreciate some help

If the two chords are together with a bar line either side it means that you should play half of the bar one chord and the other half the other chord - in 4/4 timing 2 strums of each chord.
In that one if you're playing the 8's that would mean 4 strums of each chord, if in doubt watch the video on YouTube or on the tuition website.
HTH and welcome to the forum, good luck with your learning to play guitar!
