I am a very new guitar player. I have some music background going right back to my public school days (too many years ago).

I am kicking myself that I didn't get into guitar a lot sooner. The amount of knowledge that is out there to help people like me is astonishing.

I think Jonathan, and his "breakthrough" methodology, is onto something here and while I struggle trying to memorize the various repeating patterns, I keep working on it. To actually have the ability to play along to a backing tune (as mechanical as it is right now) actually blew my mind. It will get better and it is great to set the time to actually take the guitar off the wall, plug it in and see where the music takes me.

That's it. Once you have the methodology down and the belief that you are going to get it, it just takes the dedication to keep working on it. Because you will absolutely, undeniably get there. And man, finding the answer and having the piece of mind that now all you have to do is work it, is something else haha.

Stoked to see you've had success playing along the backing tune. Those backing tracks are gold. Thanks @Brock for those. 

You'll have to keep us updated over time where the music takes you. Welcome to the band!

Welcome to the forum Kasloguy. So great to hear you are enjoying your time here. I am from the opposite end of the Country.

Nova Scotia. A little town on Cape Breton Island called Glace Bay. I am attaching a cheat sheet for the patterns that helped me greatly.

I hope it helps you too.
