Recently followed Justin's advice to listen to yourself. Well that was an eye opener!
Did not realize how boring I sound. Cords are quickly changed but there seems to be a gap maybe due to 1/8 note strum and sometimes a slight miss in the cord strum. Also I have little to no dynamics in my playing. I had thought I was doing quite well for a beginner (3 yrs).
My recommendation for beginners is to get a looper early on and self-listen.
