The barre F is working well. So well that the rest of the song needs to catch up to it now. I only use the first three fingers, leaving the pinky free to catch the B string when I need it.

When I started practicing in December, I knew that the barre F would be the biggest road block and I started practicing it, just for a few minutes, right from the start. So now it's all good

I started playing to exercise my brain and my hands. Toby's lessons have raised the challenge and made me sound pretty good. Even my friends, when they hear me like it and say things like ''Wow, I thought that was coming form the radio'!

Just started ''How Long Blues''. Nice! After the first half hour, the verse is starting to sound like something. I watched the lesson, stumbled through the verse a couple times, watched the lesson again. then I could get the rythm slowly.


Great lesson, Toby. Thanks!

Trying to work some of Toby back into my practicing. I ran through Deep River Blues a few times tonight and One Dime Blues the day before yesterday. Tough to keep up on all the tunes and spend time with family too, lol.
