    Well here goes - first post after two years of practice!! Finally getting to the point where I can get through some of the tunes. Here's Little Mary's Lamb - couple of bum notes and a few timing issues, but hey - you should have heard my first attempt!!

    The practice paid off -- not bad!  Slowing down the rough spots (that B7 can be a bear to grab quickly sometimes) will help. You also might want to try playing with the accompanying jam track to help with the timing (although I thought it sounded pretty good).

    Definitely don't wait 2 years to move on to your next one!

    Nice job for sure!
    Just a little more practice and you will have it nailed.

    Thanks Elio - had a go at playing over the jam track as suggested.

    Ok - so i blew the intro second time around but the timing is a little better I think - but best of all I nailed those B7's!!!!!!!!!
