      So Mike, here’s my issue with this lesson (actually I have the same issue with almost all new tags or songs). Even though I can memorize the song and play it at a moderate speed, my playing resembles a collection of individual notes in a staccato-like style, instead of a smooth roll. Am I doing something wrong, or is it just that I need more practice?

        Gerry,

        It’s a little difficult to say without hearing you play. Can you post a video of yourself playing in the forum?

        Are you muting the notes somehow with your left or right hand that would cut the notes off? Does it still sound staccato when you play open strings (which would naturally ring out)?

        Let me know and I’ll assist further if I can!

        -Mike
