So until further notice this is called Divergent. As I posted sometime ago, this diverged off my first picking pattern that I learned. The original was a little more country than classical. Apparently the Em & G set mimic something Metalic like, but after finding the song it reminded both my husband & sister in law of, it’s quite different. I play it set on capo  2, but also like it open and on 1. I’m still looking for that bridge that will complete it, and am working on a little riff, but for now that’s about where it is. 

This recording is with very bruised finger tips. I’ve played it better but gives the general idea of where I’m at with my beginner playing. 

For now, my goal is to move on to learning the 5 positions of the Minor Pentatonic Scale. I figure, that outta take me several weeks. But that will get me actually knowing how to place my fingers faster and better when I’m learning new stuff.  I plan on building my chord vocabulary too and working on some of the newer picking patterns I’ve learned while playing around with the chords. But the scales are my main focus for a while.
