I've been on a forum before, I ended up making about 20 people mad at me last night on reddit and had to delete the thread/post because I was getting so many thumbs down and people were getting very mad because I was not able to understand what they were saying.
I'm an old man [43 yrs old]. Some of the people were saying go find the song AC/DC Back In Black and count 1,2,3,4 outloud to it, and I was confused and I tried and didn't get what I was counting 1,2,3,4 to. I tried again earlier and I think they were meaning the drum beat. I thought 1,2,3,4 was you count that everytime you hear the guitar play [a guitar chord struck].
So 1,2,3,4 is nothing to do with the guitar playing chords but is referring to the drummer hitting the drum with his drum stick? I don't understand
I thought 1,2,3,4 was to do with the guitar playing and not drum beats?
I'm going to include a clip of me playing to a song [I don't know if GT Tricks will allow me to post a link or not], it's the chorus and it's an easy song, but I am racing trying to get the guitar in racing way too fast, this is my problem that happens over and over again, whereas others that play this song barely move there hands, that is my issue that I simply cannot fix because I'm too ignorant I guess
Another song I was trying to do was Twisted Sister - Street Justice [it's an easy song] but I was having to play so fast my hand was on fire and cramping, when other people play this song again they barely move there hand, when I try to play it it's like I feel like I'm trying to immitate the flash from DC comics, I'm playing way too fast, when I play I'm just trying to hit the guitar at the same time, and that is not working because I'm playing too fast. And no I'm not in a band [people always ask that for reason].
I did see a video last night on youtube called "How to Count Music Exercise to help you find the beat in a song" and some lady plays Michael Jackson Billie Jean and has ,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 wrote on a sheet of paper and taps the magic marker to each number, I'm not sure if that has anything to do with my problem or not?
I am just so confused at this point.
