I have been practicing the fast track of "Yellow Rose of Texas" with a strumming pattern of D-DU- U-DU using open chords except for the F chord as Steve showed in the video. As you all have experienced this, it was pretty hard on transitioning between the C to F and back to C parts in the song. But finally, I made it. Then I tried to play the song using all barre chords on the fast track. It just seems like the song is not intended to play by jumping from the C barre chord to F barre chord and back to C barre chord again. And when I looked closely at the book, Steve mentioned playing using all barre chords only for "Home on the Range" song but not for the "Yello Rose of Texas". I tried to read other forums discussing "Yellow Rose of Texas" and one person asked the same question I did. I just wanted to clarify if I am required or not to play "Yellow Rose of Texas" fast track using all barre chords. If not, I would be very happy and relieved to know that I can finally move on to the next session by giving a whole lot of time and practice for this session. Thank you.
Another question, I tried messaging Steve from this web page, but he doesn't seem to be reading the messages. If you guys have a way of contacting Steve for personal opinions and suggestions, could you tell me how to reach him? Thank you all very much.
