And I'm somewhat improved. I've been playing on my church's youth group's praise team for about a month and a half now (weekly). And that's been going pretty well. I actually had a solo the first week I played, which I nearly botched, but I quickly recovered. But here's the thing... I'm not sure how to play chords. Don't get me wrong; I know the structure of the major and minor scales, and how a chord is usually composed of the 1st, 3rd, and 5th notes of the scale (with a flattened 3rd for minor, correct?). But how fast (or slow) do you play those notes? Does it depend on the song? Does musical notation help define the speed? Much love, mah homeslices.
