Sounds good.Looks like you got that one going pretty good.
I don't no about putting it aside?? Just break it down to the parts that make up the whole song.Put it in your practice songs. And move on to a new one.
Got the finger picking sounding good. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for the encouragement! I appreciate it.
Here is another video -Knocking on Heaven's Door.
I remember going to see this movie - "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid" at an afternoon matinee in a large Downtown theater on the first day of its release to see Bob Dylan acting in a movie.
The soundtrack has some pretty good songs, including Knocking on Heaven's Door.
I have been taking guitar lessons the past few months from a local teacher. After watching me struggle for weeks on Boots of Spanish Leather, he suggested this song as easier to sing.
The challenge for me was singing while doing the ballad strum, as my right hand wants to do the folk strum when I sing. Next, I am going to go for a walk while I chew gum.
Jim, Your strumming arm (and hand) are so much more relaxed now. That's great! Your chord changes are coming along nicely. Now you just have to work on the timing of your singing to be in sync with your strumming. But everything is progressing nicely.
