    Hi @IMPBW I am so sorry to hear about your dear sister!!

    I send a big hug your way, and I hope you find some comfort with your loved ones and knowing that the angels are in good company.

    The other thing I saw in your post is, “I stopped playing daily because it stopped being fun” and, “I want to play guitar”…. The trick is to keep it fun.

    Try not to be so hard on yourself and/or rush the process… It’s a journey and sometimes we don’t notice the progress we are making until we look back and see how far we’ve come. If your fingers are sore because you’re still building up your callouses, try shorter more frequent practice sessions (Instead of one 30 minute practice, try three 10 minute practice sessions, or two 15 minute ones)

    Also, I looked up the song you mentioned “Jealous of the Angels” and wow it’s beautiful… There’s a few You Tube versions of it that have the chords and lyrics. I’d tell you to just learn the chords in the song and maybe do a simple down strum on the first beat of each measure, as you sing along. It will surely give you motivation and a sense of accomplishment and I know your sister will be looking down along with her angels, and smiling at you.

    God bless,

    Carol 3M
