Well I haven't posted much in recent times, and I really haven't been practicing enough either :oops: . Anyway, I was playing some songs yesterday that I hadn't played in a few weeks and a real fraky thing started happening :? . I was thinking one chord in my head, but my fingers were fretting a differant chord. Well that happened a few times, and when I checked the chord sheets it turns out that what was in my head was wrong and what my fingers did was right. I was really surprised :shock: , that never happened to me before. Could it be that I'm finally becoming a guitar player :idea: ?

yeah. your fingers know best. so welcome to being a real player now.
now that your fingers can do the walking it is the best time to throw attitude into your playing.
just imagine now how it would be if you played a little every day?

Sounds like you're there. :D

I sometimes have the occasion where my fingers go to the wrong chord though. :oops: Luckily most of the time they get it right!

wait until you start spacing out and a minute later you can't figure out how you're playing what you're playing or how you got there.
