thanks to Corey and JD, I have already started following the advice Corey gave to me and it is getting better.
What I realized is, as all of you say, it takes time. Sometimes I feel like I don't want to wait all the time that is needed but would like to jump ahead and already being able to play all the tunes that Corey knows.
I Know is a strange feeling and even stupid. Playing the guitar and being on a learning process is part of the path and part of the fun and I should not be thinking about knowing as much tunes as I can.
We have to play, have fun and keep getting better day by day...it takes time!!!
I must do a tattoo on my shoulder with this sentence "IT TAKES TIME
Hi Corey, after a couple of months working day by day on this style I can now handle some tunes and learn new ones easily.I am really doing great progress,at least I think so.I am really enjoying to play this style and I want to thank you about it and about your great lessons.I have one question/problem about singing:I don't mean sing the song in a very good way I am not a singer at all, I mean that I do not understand how to fix the words with the music. I know English the problem is not related to the language.The problem is related on how to put together words and music and make them just one thing.Do you have any advice or exercise I can make to learn faster the melody I have to sing while playing?Should I first learn the tune on the guitar, put down the guitar and learn how to sing it and then put them together?Is this the correct approach?
Corey, about singing I already asked in another section on the website that it would be great to have lyrics of the songs we are doing here.
I do know english but singing is another matter and It would be great to have lyrics to study easily the singing part of the songs we are doing here.
Thank in advance
It's one of my favourite even for me. Thanks Corey.
Thank Alex, I will try. I will be changing strings for a bigger one because I have read that it helps for the slide.
So.... summing up:
1: rise the action
2: bigger strings if you want
3. To buy I slide of course :)
....and that'it you have a slide guitar.
Great thank a lot.
I am back from vacation, I need an information.
I will start working on slide guitar according to the songs that Corey does on sonic-junction.
I don't have a slide guitar but I know that I can make my acoustic guitar good for slide by rising the action and changing strings for much bigger one.
Does anyone of you know the proper steps to make a normal acoustic a slide guitar??.
Looking forward to hearing your feedback.
Thanks to everybody for the kinds words.
Alex, grazie per il tuo post, sì per me che ho sempre suonato con il plettro e suono principalmente blues elettrico é molto dura. Non ho mai suonato con le dita e per impare dei passaggi, che forse per te sono semplici impiego molto tempo.
Sono un amante del blues o meglio sono pazzo di blues ed ho deciso di imparare anche questo stile poichè tutto il blues moderno deriva da qui, mi sto rendendo conto che imparare questo stile mi fa crescere sullo strumento in tutti gli altri ambiti.
Ho scoperto il sito per caso navigando su google.
Hey guys I will try to post as soon as something decent comes out feom my fingers.
loving sonic junction, thank to every body
Hi guys, I am studying this song since I joined sonic junction more than 1 week ago.
I have leraned Catfish blues as well but still can't play those songs
I can know play them but still having some trouble on singing and playing. I love learning this kind of blues but I found it difficult and it takes time.
All of you here at the sonic junction are very good guitarist and I don't know I will post something I am not that good.
Anyway it is a long journey even for you to learn these songs or do you learn them easily.
Anyway very good staff here thank for sharing.
Yep, I am from Italy and the t-shirt I am wearing is right back from my last visit to the great festival Umbria Jazz
Hello Corey, I have just joined
the payment is worth enough just for the fact that I can see you playing.
Your playing is really ipnotic and remind me of Litgthin Hopkins.
I am an electric blues player but I want to learn a bit of acoustic root, delta blues fingerpicking.
I found it really hard. I started learnig catfishblues but it is so hard for me to get down both the bassline and the melody line. I guess it takes time but I am pretty sure this will make me a better player.
thank you and I hope I will be able to learn acoustic blues.
