Fingerstyle guitar practice (short video)

It's been about 6 weeks since I got my guitar, I've been trying to play as often as possible, almost every day but depending on how busy I am sometimes only for short periods.

I'm learning fingerstyle guitar so I usually do a mix of finger picking patterns, some basic finger exercises like the spider thing and then strum around and have a bit of fun. My fingertips have hardened on my left hand pretty well so it doesn't hurt too much anymore unless I play for a long time.

I have a playlist of songs I would like to tackle, this is the first one I've been working on, this is just the first section, it basically repeats.

I find when I get into a meditative zone I can play much better. If too many thoughts pop into my head I start to lose the tempo or stumble a bit. It's pretty rare that I can play through fully without at least making a few stumbles as you can see in the video below 👇😂

Maybe I will post an updated version when I am able to play it with no errors and sing the verses on top. Another 6 weeks maybe?

Your finger picking is going better than mine is, and I only have 4 strings to worry about. 😀
Of course, it would help if I actually practiced more regularly...

It's nice when the muscle memory starts to kick in, sometimes I doubt my fingers then they go to the right place but I stumble anyways because I don't expect it 😂

Hey.. That's not bad at all. Yeah you had a few errors and the transition was not always smooth, but I could hear the melody just perfectly and I actually loved it. Great job and I am sure in another 6 weeks this will sound A LOT different.

I also have an acoustic guitar. It's an acoustic electric and I practiced for a good while and started to sound okay.. not like you at all. Mine sucks. lol. But it was fun and rewarding (like creating art can be). I think my fingers are too fat lol. You have nice petite fingers that are good for plucking those strings.

Best wishes with the new interest! 😁

Ha thanks, it's only been about a week and my transitions are already a wee bit smoother, also it's always extra nerve wracking when it's being recorded 😂 Can definitely be frustrating to advance you basically just have to power through and keep going until it starts to finally click, there are no shortcuts just practice practice practice like anything else I guess!
