I’m new to the forum but I can’t wait to ask.
I’ve been playing for almost six weeks (tomorrow). I’ve got the basics. I can do single notes, blow the C major scale pretty well backwards and forwards, I work on ‘chugging’, though my speed is still kinda slow. II know how to and can bend, though working anything but basic bends into any freestyling is hard for me right now. I can even do a slow, basic blues jam/freestyle with a backup track, as long as the tempo isn’t too fast.
But I think I’ve hit a wall. To move forward, is it just a matter of learning songs, etc? I know a few basic riffs and stuff like that. Am I at the point now that I just need to practice, learn songs, listen to and ‘imitate’ songs, etc to gain speed and progress as a player?
Its a bit frustrating but if that’s what I need to do, I think hearing it from others will help me to calm down, be patient and just practice.
FYI - All I have is a ‘C’ harp right now. I’ll be getting my next one soon. Any suggestions as to key? I was thinking ‘G’.
