I’ve been working on learning to play chord backup. For weeks now I’ve picked up the fiddle almost every day and played 7 different chords on g and d strings and d & a strings. Chords a g d and c. Playing I’ll fly away and trying to sound ok playing on recored YouTube videos. It’s been difficult bc for a log time at first it sounded so bad. Now that I’ve memorized these chords, I feel like it sounds better. Jocelyn offered feedback that helped greatly on I’ll fly away. This opens up a whole new dimension of music!

Chords have been difficult but are worth it. I stayed at it by returning to rythem music that I enjoy playing when chords were not sounding good/frustration. Also, I’ve been playing chords on mandolin for fun.
