Hi and welcome

A well intentioned gift.

I am going to differ from Moose on this a bit, and I have seen this on YouTube. Ultimately we want to be able to play the guitar, and that means we need to learn how to make chords cleanly and our transitions need to be clean. There is only 1 way to do that: practice. Slow at first and build up speed over time.

Marty Schwartz did a review on this a few years ago and he was in the middle as I recall. A good tool for kids maybe - I would have to go back and rewatch the vid.

In my opinion, you will be better served if you slow down, learn the chords, learn the strum patterns in whatever time you need to learn them and build them into muscle memory.

Good luck with your studies.


This year the diet is definitely gonna stick!
