Should the lessons be taken one lesson at a time?
« on: January 24, 2021, 09:54:03 pm »
Hi!

Apologies in advance if this has been asked before,

I've started about 4 hours ago trying to learn guitar again; I vaguely played around with it a few years ago but never really got going, so plan on doing things properly this time!

I've gone through videos BC-101 to BC-110, and have started practising the D-chord in video BC-111. I suck, but that's to be expected. My question is; is it recommended to be proficient at a D-chord before moving on to video BC-112 in a few weeks time, or is it better to work on 2 / 3 / 4 videos concurrently?

Thanks

It’s ok to try and learn the three main chords to start with E, A and D, when you can get these right there are literally 100’s of songs to play, which is the whole point of the course, learn songs..... learn songs...... etc.
Having fun and being able to play something that you and others recognise is so very rewarding.
Still here, still learning and still a monumentally stubborn old f4rt 😂

Hi and warm welcome to community. I always think there's nothing wrong to have a little sneak peak to see what future holds in the course however the more things you learn at once the slower progress you are going to make on each thing you learn. The more things you are going to learn at once the more frustrsted you might become and discouraged. I agree with Darrell, learn anything up to a point where you have chords A D and E under your fingers and don't push forward anymore. It's a long road so enjoy the ride ;)

Morning all!

Very kind of you all, thanks for the warm welcome!

I'm working from home at the minute during the COVID-19 pandemic, so will take advantage of that and bring the guitar up to the makeshift office with me. I think I'll have another day or two at the D chord so I can remember the finger positioning, then start moving on to trying the A and E chords later in the week.

Thanks again

Hi Blibble and welcome to the forum.
It looks like you have found the best place to learn guitar and find supportive guitar friends here.
:)

It also looks like you have dived into the Classic beginner course.
Many people used that successfully and have gone on to play.

Note though, Justin spent much of the last two years improving and making his entire lesson structure for beginners in the New beginner course here.
Can  Isuggest you jump on board with the new one as it is 'improved'.
