    So I’m 6 weeks or so in after being a dabbler for a few years. I’ve done the 30 day and the 5 day routine challenge, and the basic strumming videos. I practice basic chords everyday and am struggling with the easy F, but I know that in time it will come.

    My question is what should I do next? The daily challenges have been above me but are fun (I am planning on a redo of the 30 day).

    Some days I do not go on TAC at all and hit up some YouTube videos for things that come to my mind, I find that after being in TAC I am better to understand these type of videos better.

    Is a hybrid TAC and my YouTube system a good plan?

    Like I said, I am having the most fun and seeing more progress than ever, just looking for direction, thanks.

    Hi @cuz , have you tried the “Next 6 Chords” or any “Jumpstart” courses? If not, that is a direction I would recommend. They’re located in the Skill Courses section on this site.👍

    Hi cuz, welcome to TAC.

    I’d suggest that you hit the daily challenges for the recommended minimum of ten minutes a day. You shouldn’t be concerned that any one of them are above you. Many of them are above most of us especially at higher speeds. The challenge makes you a better player. I’ve been doing the daily’s at TAC for over 18 months now and find that most of them are a challenge. You might want to look into taking the fretboard wizard course, there’s a lot in there that will improve your musical knowledge in relation to the guitar fretboard. I know my playing has improved doing this. I used to just play along with midi files I found on the internet for fun. Now I find it’s even more fun, hitting the right notes much more often, figuring out the key of the song and the chords that could be played with it. Have fun and enjoy your TAC membership.

      I like your suggestions a lot and I need to “get back in the saddle” after putting my acoustic guitar down a long time ago. I lost two family members – my mother in December 2020 and most recently, my eldest sister in May 2021. She was only 60 years old. So, I need to readjust myself and start playing again. I think music is therapy.
