    Hello @KayMesser ;

    First, I think you have all the advice you need. I especially like what @Kitman said, slow waaaaay down as you move from one chord to the other. Really pay attention to your finger, hand, wrist and elbow positions as the change. And then @jumpinjeff ‘s advice to pay attention to tension is really important and will get you the rest of the way there.

    So, all I can really add is the encouragement. It sounds to me like you are doing great. You are going slow, using a metronome, and practicing. It takes time. That’s pretty much the answer that we wish we didn’t have to hear.

    That’s why Tony tries to give us musical and fun exercises. That way, as we are learning, we can play something that sounds good none the less. His blues progressions in the 30 Days to Play course are great to play over and over. You could even try coming up with some words to sing along with your playing. That would be fun and engaging.

    So I guess what I really wanted to add is: Have Fun. That’s the number one rule and only real rule. Always enjoy your own sound and you won’t even notice the time slipping by during which you are improving.
