GUEST,Tunesmith Playing the guitar (134* d) RE: Playing the guitar 18 Sep 18

What's interesting about the tab that I posted above is that I have written it out in three stages and with 90% plus of my pupils they have no trouble with stage one ( I total beginner should be able to do that!)
Stage two ( where the index finger is introduced) usually causes no problems BUT, stage three where the note on the "and" of beat three is added has caused all sorts of problems.
    Counting the rhythm of the notes - away from the guitar - helps. Even playing each half of the bar separately seems to help some i.e.
A) 1 2 and
B) 3 and 4
then joining the two halves together.
And, of course, don't rush! " Nice and easy does it every time" as Dostoevsky once said!
