Week 3 of my quest to become a guitar goddess brought me three new chords (E minor, C, and D7), to bring me to a grand total of six chords, which is shocking. I can actually remember them all. We also learned the classic G-Em-C-D7 progression, upon which a surprising number of songs are based. Our new tablature piece was the theme from Peter Gunn. Bleh. I know it’s good to practice those pieces to build dexterity, but I have very little interest in fingerwork at this point. Speaking of which, my calluses aren’t quite there yet. Fingers hurt. I think I should be toughened up properly in about one more week.
