One year of guitar, end of week 1

Saturday was kind of pathetic. Only got about fifteen minutes in, and that was mostly me figuring out that barre chords are next-to-impossible on my old Epiphone acoustic.

Tonight, one hour + of working on faster chord changes in open chords and learning a couple of songs.

Figured out how to play “Hey Ya” and “I’ve Never Met a Girl Like You Before” (Edwyn Collins). The course I’m using recommends both of those as open-chord songs (with capo on the “Girl Like You”) but I found them easy enough to play as barre chord tunes. Both fun songs. I feel slightly better about life, having figured them out.

My fingers hurt a bit. Not too bad.
