    Hey @Julie C Great video and awesome progress. Posture is not easy to change either. Great job!

    @Doctor How, changing posture is hard for sure.  I was used to playing with my guitar kind of sideways so I could always see my hands.  Holding the guitar properly changed what I could see, and how both hands connected with the guitar.  I constantly was hitting the wrong strings and missing chords when I made the switch.

    Such a beautiful and heartfelt video from you @Julie C! I recall posts from previous events from you and watching you today was the icing on the cake! This journey is pulling you out of your bedroom for all of us to hear you! What a big step!!! I am so happy to see your amazing progress! You are an inspiration to all of us! Making a video is no small feat and you did it!!! Congrats!

    Thank you @Julie I.  This was really really really hard for me.  I am very comfortable being invisible.  The thought of making a video ate at me the entire challenge.  My quiet personality holds me back in so many ways.  It really feels good to be out of the bedroom.

    Congrats @Julie C! These videos are fantastic! Really inspiring.Thank you for sharing all of these.

    Thank you @Jeffrey A.  When I saw how many people did the stage 1 pledge compared to how many made a video, I knew it had to be hard for so many.  I really hope the third video with a small glimpse of my struggle will make others feel they are not alone.  That was a real hard thing to post.  But I did it hoping it would help others.

    You did it and you should be very proud. I have a tough time recording in front of people and the camera, even when I am alone. I just repeat the recording until I get a decent  one.

    This is a "BIG WIN"  for you. You did clear , clean picking, which isn't easy.  Don't stop now. Keep them coming. Easier said than done!!  Great Job!

    Thank you @Christine P ! Sadly I had no recording to repeat until I got a decent one.  Was totally tongue tied in every one until I thought of the teleprompter app.  Have about three hours of senseless babbles recorded.

    @Julie C I recall some of your struggles here in the past year or so .... when I saw you had a video posted I was really compelled to watch! You did not disappoint 😄👍! I’m very proud of you and your progress you should be as well ! So bust some buttons keep that chin up, and bask in the achievement! A course correction is something we all benefit from now and then. Thanks  again for the inspiration!

    Thank you @Todd T !  Playing has been a struggle for me on so many levels.  I learned so much from this 30 day challenge.  And went waaaaaaaay out of my comfort zone to make that video.  It took awhile to hit the "submit" button to actually post it.  TAC has given me a wish bone and a backbone when it comes to guitar.

    One giant step forward. BIG WIN!  it was probably getting stuffy in that closet..  The new you!  Amazing.

    @Christine P it felt kind of sad always hiding.  The family here really is not into music and says so.  Now if they do not like what they hear, they are free to move.  No more hiding.

    Well it's nice to meet you this new guitar player @Julie C. What did happened to the old Julie? Oh, she left with the thin picks ;)

    Glad the 30 day challenge  got to you like that. Lets keep it up!! I know you have to do the heavy lifting, but TAC and the people of TAC are here for you. Don't be a stranger ;)


    p.s Pretty guitar BTW ;)


    @Michael K73 if it were not for the people of TAC I would have quit playing last year.  This site is so much more than lessons. Kind of fun trying out different picks.  Luna sounds so loud!

    Well, I too have been truly affected by the 30 days challenge in many ways, one for posting my first video of me playing the guitar ever! then suddenly i found myself in such a creative zone yesterday that i ended up composing my first ever soundtrack!! i feel so strangely elated today!! :D

    Very cool!

  10. The 30 Day Challenge affected me in many ways. Best guitar month ever! I started out the challenge as a person who has a guitar that I try to play. But somehow I ended the challenge as a guitar player!  I always played on my bed, guitar in lap, all hunched over in my pjs behind closed doors with the most bendy softest pick possible. My trusty old white pick. The posture video made me really look hard at how I have been treating myself. How others view me as a player really starts with me. I now own a real guitar stool, a music stand, and my Luna actually hangs on the wall. We both came out of hiding.   And my white picks have been retired. So, allow me to reintroduce myself.   I am Julie C from Haskell NJ. And I AM a guitar player!!!! Thank you TAC!!!
