Once you can play a few songs from the stage you’re on then you should be able to start on the next stage learning new chords, 60 changes isn’t a hard and fast rule and you shouldn’t let it hold you back - of course try to achieve it but when you feel the need to go forward do so!
You could always record yourself and post your recording for constructive critique (it will always be constructive here!) and then you will have an unbiased opinion of how things are going!
My singing sucks so I’m learning Guitar and Ukulele, it’s fun 🌟

Benchmark for first few stages is actually 40, which is stated in the lesson notes somewhere but for some reason most folk miss it and are always chasing 60. So if your chords are clean and you've managed TLB, move on. Work on the other Stage 1 songs while learning the Stage 2 tech stuff ie new chords.

It might be because it's listed under the practice schedule for stage 2 but I get what you are saying. I think I moved on once I hit 40, just to come back and try again later in the lessons and be able to hit 60 thanks to practicing the other ones. I'm with the others(although not as experienced), it's probably best not to get too hung up on the exact number. Practicing the songs has been a huge help in my one minute changes.

Well I just did a test and I don't have a problem with 60 changes pr. minute WITHOUT strumming, but as soon as I add strumming the A and D chords, it slows me down because I am focusing too much on not hitting all the strings.  The E chord is not a problem since I can just strum all the strings there.
Any tips on how I can get the strumming on A and D down?
