Thanks for the Video Reply and this reply. I like your mantra Practice, Patience & Persistence. I may make a sign and hang it in my practice area.
I’m a real guitar nut now, I bought a 3rd guitar! its a super cheapo First Act- Adam Levine (Maroon 5) Electric guitar pack.
it was at one of those overstock stores, got it for $57, perfect for keeping in the corner of my office to do finger exercises and cord practice.
It doesn’t make noise to bother others like an acoustic would. woo hoo! extra practice time!
