  • Accessing previous challenges

    Posted by bsevett on February 24, 2022 at 10:50 am

    I’ve just begun TAC a couple of weeks ago. I have years of guitar dabbling, but have mostly focused on learning chords and songs. Learning the skills and challenges is exciting and new to me, and requiring a lot of “fun” practice. It’s kind of slow going, and I’m not keeping up with the challenges. I’ve figured out how to see all the February challenges, so that I can go back through them, but I’m afraid they’ll all disappear first of March. Is there a way to access previous months’ challenges or do I have to bookmark every single challenge in order to find them again? I’ve seen the advice to just keep progressing forward, and I get that, but still want to back up and keep practicing previous lessons, too.

    Ok. I still have the question above, but I just watched How to Get Started and I see that what I really should do is the 30 Days to Play. I’ll get on that today.

    Hello Barry ( @bsevett ),

    Welcome to TAC. The best guitar instruction site on the whole web in my opinion. So that’s the first bravo, for finding and joining TAC. (Small Win. 😁)

    It sounds like you are actually doing very well. You are already having fun. That’s the number one ingredient to making progress, so bravo to you again. (Small Win 2 😃)

    Then, you’re “not keeping up with the challenges”, but you did some looking around in the forum and you found the advice to “just keep progressing forward”. That’s actually 2 separate bravos. First, you used the community. Bravo. (Small Win 3 😄) Then you learned that we are simply “trying” and not “mastering” the lessons. One of the most difficult concepts for us to get when we first get here since it is so unusual but also one of the most important as our fun and steady progress is dependent on that attitude. So that’s a really huge Bravo. (Small Win 4 😍)

    Then, before anyone comes over to your thread and gives you a reply, you find the “How to Get Started” video and decide you will go through the “30 Days to Play” course. That is another huge Bravo. (Small Win 5 😎)

    But we’re still not done. I still have to answer the actual question. So, using the community to ask a question is itself a big win because that will allow you to benefit the most from TAC. So Bravo. (Small Win 6 😊)

    Then, of course, there’s the part where you already guessed, correctly, what the answer to your question is. Yes, you have to “bookmark” every lesson you want to get back to. Except here, it’s called “favorite”-ing. You hit the little “heart” icon below and to the right of the lesson window. When you click on the down arrow beside you profile name, you will have an option to go to your “favorites”. So, Bravo for that. (Small Win 7 😉)

    Have fun and continue participating in the forum community. We’d love to continue seeing your progress. Thanks for letting us know what’s going on at this time.

    MG 😀

      Where are the videos?

      Don’t you think the fact that you have to bookmark the challenges is a bit annoying since we are supposed to have access to all previous lessons.

        Hello Janice @[email protected]

        There are many things in life I find annoying. If I looked at them, I would literally feel bad all the time. So I try to overlook them so I can feel good most of the time.

        As far as where the videos are, I do not know what videos you are referring to. There are an awful lot of videos on this site.

    Thanks for your reply, Mike. I’ve always loved playing guitar, but seemed to have hit a ceiling. I’m looking forward to TAC to help me break through that ceiling.
