  • Starting Daily Challenge

    Posted by dfmarcus63 on March 19, 2022 at 4:57 pm

    I just started TAC: completed the 30 Days to Play Challenge and the 5 Day Guitar Routine Challenge. I assume the next step is to begin the Daily Challenge. Is there a “beginning” to Daily Challenge (like a first lesson where everyone starts) or do I start on whatever is posted today, Mar 19? A related question is… if today is my first day for there Daily Challenge, why does my screen say “Day 5 – The Gauntlet”? Shouldn’t this be Day 1 for me? Thanks.

    Welcome to the TAC community @dfmarcus63 ! Congrats on a great start of your journey. The daily lessons only occur Monday through Friday. Each week is a different focus, so I would just start with tomorrows lesson.

    @dfmarcus63 , I would recommend you take the 5-day routine challenge along with the Daily challenge. Monday is a great day to start both. The 5-day skill course explains what he is showing you in the daily challenges. Good luck and welcome.

    Ok, @dfmarcus63 , direct answer to your direct questions:

    1) is there a beginning to the Daily Challenge – NO

    The dailies don’t work that way. They give us direction for practice that day. Throughout the week, they cover the range of guitar skills. If we do these lessons everyday, even just 10 minutes a day, we will see steady progress. Yes, it’s slow. It’s guitar. We’re the lucky ones because we are improving slowly but steadily as opposed to not getting anywhere for years.

    2) Your screen said “The Gauntlet” that day just as everyone’s screen said “The Gauntlet” that day. That was the daily lesson that day.

    3) Of course it was day one for you. It was the first day you did a daily lesson. The daily lesson that was on tap that first day was “The Gauntlet”.

    Welcome to TAC. The best online guitar instruction site on the World Wide Web, in my opinion. Have fun is the number one goal. How cool is that. And everyone who does these daily lessons sees improvement regardless of what the do or don’t understand or how they go about it or where they started from. There are few guitarists who have enough, broad-based skill to get zero benefit from TAC. Pretty sure if you were there you wouldn’t be here. 😁

    I hope this helps.
