    My win for today was not giving up on the caged system. I managed to play the scale patterns, and that was about it.

    That’s it! Doing what you can; and keeping on going. That is the hard part sometime. Things click slow for me both in understanding and playing. It is sheer perseverance that has caused me to see any progression; even when I thought I was spinning my wheels.

    Congratulations for keeping on going!

    Ow wow @stevieblues , you’re playing a chord pattern😱 Just slow down and take it in 🤩 You’re playing a moveable pattern associated with that moveable chord – that’s mind blowing stuff – IMHO – 🎉🎸🍻 Let it sink in to your mind for a while, then let’s talk about how you feel about it😎

    Thanks for the comments Philb and Bill_Brown. Things went much better today. Still not out of the dark yet, but moving forward.

    Great win @stevieblues . I have to agree with @Bill_Brown , you are under celebrating! Your progress is awesome! I will leave you with one piece of coaching I received some time ago: meet yourself where you are vs where you think you ought to be. Then take small steps from there and celebrate each one. The progress comes more quickly than you think and it is more fun. Anyway – congrats and yahoo! 🎉🎸🎶😎
