  • Lost and hurt!

    Posted by stevieblues on November 23, 2021 at 2:22 pm

    I’m trying to learn the Hammer the hurt session, and I get lost after the first part. The numbers Tony is counting seems to get me confused. Then there is the finger picking, I’m completely new to this. It could just be my memory issues causing me trouble. Any thoughts on what I can try to find my way out of the woods?

    @stevieb. Im not sure exactly which lesson you’re referring to, but just give it your best try and mark it complete. Things will eventually get easier, and the goal isn’t to perfect it, especially if you’re new to it. All the daily lessons come back around about every 8 months, and you’ll be amazed the 2nd time through what you can do without nearly as much effort. For now, throw out the counting and just go with what sounds and feels good.

    I struggled with this one too. Hammering a string after you pick it is hard for me. I just play it without the hammering and it’s still pretty cool. Try playing it like that and then maybe add in hammers. Lots of techniques in hear with finger picking and hammer ons. You can try the specific skill courses for fingerpicking and hammer ons too.
