I guess I should elaborate. I seem to have no sense of rhythm. I'm trying to learn "Apache" by "The Shadows", which is a very easy song from a technique perspective. I can get the intro and first two sections done, but when he gets to a part that sounds like galloping, I can't grasp my head around it at all - I saw tutorials on how to play it and I still can't replicate that rhythm.
The backing guitar which only strums two chords for the most part is another thing I tried but again - no sense of rhythm to be had, and I botch it.
On theory, I know how to improvise and how to play in a key, and so I have also tried improvising over a backing track. I sound robotic, can barely play in "time" and there's no phrasing and no rhythm again.
I've been practicing the guitar again since 2020. I bought an electric one last year - for those two years of practice, I can play two very simple songs on the acoustic guitar, and a very simple version of the Narcos intro theme song on the electric guitar.
Last time I played the guitar before that was in 2006 - 2007 when I was in high school and taking guitar lessons. And I was shit at it then too. It hurts because I love the instrument, I love holding it and learning about it, soaking in the theory and history of it and watching other people play - but I myself cannot do it. And I hate that I can't.
Oof. I feel for you. Mine used to be so bad that whenever I had them during my cycle, I'd spend 40% of the school week in the nurse's office bed. This was in highschool.Cramps.
If you could remove the beartrap from my insides, that'd be great.
I also had cysts in my ovaries, and I was told that those were the cause of my cramps.Oof. I feel for you. Mine used to be so bad that whenever I had them during my cycle, I'd spend 40% of the school week in the nurse's office bed. This was in highschool.
