Hi Ben,

I know you know this, but I'll just say it anyway. What I had to do is slow it way down and then just work on those tricky measures. Mine was not perfect by a long shot. Counting out loud is hard. It's like the old saying, can't chew gum and walk at the same time.

You'll be great!

To keep from getting lost in the middle of the tune while counting I had to convert all of the notes to eights and write the counts over them. Still not able to get a decent recording of it. My fingernails also started hanging on the strings, which hasn't helped at all, either.
Ben,
are you trying to count in real speed? For me it helps a lot when I count it slowly (1 second/beat) then pace it when I already know the correct tempo.
I have no fingernails, but my fingers sometimes hang on the string as well. It's natural!

Bill,
here it is, couting out loud as you asked :)

Hi Shelby, you sounded good. I found counting out loud to be difficult and made me take my focus off of playing the notes.

D01 lesson 7, improvise using only four notes, d-g-a-b, for 20 seconds.
Hi Ben,
Your coming along well. :bravo: Just a little buzz. I get that sometimes too. Sometimes my nails hang too. I get out the power sander and take them down a notch or two. :mrgreen:
Thanks, Bill

Song: o bella ciao....
What do the Roman numerals II mean?

Sometimes romans are used to indicate the use of a barre chord but I dont see in the videos. And if i play the song with half bar in the seconnd fret, is quite uncomfortable....

Scott, :bravo: I think counting out loud caught most of us off guard. It was interesting to hear how we all handled it. In Quand, it sounded a little bit like you ran through the song. Other than that, it all sounded good.

Hi Edna,

His indication in this case is he wants you to use the number 1 finger on what you would typically use the number 2 figure on you left hand to play. He does this a lot. But it does help with understanding how he wants you to position your fingers for certain music.

What I meant is that you said it would be difficult, and it was!
And you're right, when I count out loud I focus on speaking and I forget about the playing correctly.

Hi Ben,

I was having the same problem before. My finger nails kept getting caught on the string making me hesitate. Well, I found out the hard way why it occurred, I broke one of my nails and had to cut them down. Once they grew in a little the problem stopped. It could be your nails are a little too long. File them down a little and see how it goes
