    I went through the 30 days to play, working on the next 6 chords and the Finger Stretch 5 Day Challenge. I’m not sure if I should go ahead and try the daily challenges now or do some other skill course. I

    Hi @LisaH Congrats on graduating from “30 Days to Play”!! That’s awesome 🙂

    The next steps are up to you, you could do both the daily challenges and another skill course if you like. (The daily challenge is meant to take up about 10 minutes, so if time allows you can tackle something else as well.) I love to mix it up a bit, but each person is different.

    I would highly recommend that you go to the “Guitar Journal” link on the right side banner of the main screen, just after “Fretboard Wizard”, it’s a free downloadable guitar goals worksheet that will help you figure out how to use your guitar time the best for you. Best wishes in your guitar journey!! C

    @LisaH Congratulations on completing the 30 days to play and moving onto the next 6 chords. I agree with @Carol-3M-Stillhand regarding giving the daily challenges a try for at least a minimum of 10 minutes. Some will be.easier and others more difficult, but we don’t get better without a challenge. As for the Skills courses, look around and see what interests you. I took the Jumpstart courses first, because I didn’t have any experience at guitar prior to joining TAC. I then moved onto other skills courses and I took Fretboard Wizard. Have fun with it, and let us know if you have questions or comments.

    Hello @LisaH ;

    @Carol-3M-Stillhand and @Loraine have given you some great advice. The only thing I would add is about the daily challenge. Many of the challenges might seem way too difficult for you. That is a very common reaction at first. Some of the challenges, or lessons, were so difficult for me at the beginning that I could just barely follow what I was supposed to be trying to do with my fingers on the 2 hands, never mind making anything sounding even remotely similar to what Tony was playing. But amazingly, putting that time and effort in was exactly what I was supposed to do and nothing more. Over a few months, it was obvious that my guitar skills were growing. After being here a year, when lessons I had already seen came around again, it was amazing to me how much better I could do them even though I hadn’t practiced that particular lesson once since I saw it last.

    So the message is, don’t worry about how difficult the daily lessons might seem. Just do what you can for the minimum 10 minutes and your guitar skills will grow slowly but very steadily.
