maybe even learn a tiny bit of theory?
I know i know. I hear ya. I hardly have the time to play over the last few months. But when i do after working, cooking , looking after and spending time with my 4 month old. I just want to sit down and play. But i am slowly slowly trying to learn new stuff.
Again know the 1 4 5 chord of a given key and being able to just jam is theory and something you should have got a little of , I can solo using One finger play the E and B string and I can teach this as well.
You do not really need much theory to do this , you do need a little I teach must theory but jamming and learning songs.
If you do not learn the major scale with chords and learn to number these chords you will never make the connection that will teach you how to teach yourself, your a full grown man its 7 chords and the ##### 7 chord is not even used much in pip or rock stuff, the flat 7th is LOL
in the key of A play the b and e string at the 5th fret well that sound great sound better sliding like a half step away
That.s the 5th and root and sounds good ,move this up 3 frets and your playing the Flat7th and the minor 3rd still on the A chord but you should be able to get a grove on with one finger.
Again Slide too the 5th fret a half step below up to the 5th fret.
When the D come move this up to the 10th fret and too the 12 fret for E.
