    I feel happy and more confident while playing. I played my first song with mini barre chords and actually enjoyed it. I’ve never done that before!

  • Vetriselvi Senguttuvan

    I’m already playing things that were a nightmare to me before. Strumming patterns, smoothly changing chords, and improvisation of different scales. The frustration is over.
