Hi all, I am a new member to GT. I consider myself to be a beginner, but have had an old acoustic guitar loafing around for a few years now, so I have some chords under my belt and do have a bit of music theory behind me.
I recently bought my first electric guitar and want to get a bit more serious about progressing.
I am really interested in learning to play the blues, and have started into the blues lessons. I really enjoy them, and have made some progress.
Thing is, I want to play songs (doesn't everyone!!??!!). I decided to start with "Baby please don't go" (Muddy Waters) because I like the song and it listed as one of the easiest Blues songs in GT.
I have progressed to being able to play all the parts reasonably well, but there is no way I can play it at the pace the jam track/performance video play at. I get bits of it, but playing the whole thing at that pace seems way off for me. I'm sure that in a few years I might come close.
My real issue is that this is rated as "beginner" tune (2 guitars difficulty). If that's so, then there is no way I can attempt a 3 guitar difficulty song anytime in the forseeable future! I really love to play the song, just wish it was playable at a "slightly" slower pace.
Has anyone else struggled to keep up with this beginner level song? Can anyone recommend another Blues song from the list that might be more doable for a person of my meagre abilities?
