Ukulele Challenge Day 4

I am doing a 10 day Challenge to get better at Ukulele.

I want to improve two things this round:

1. Moving up and down the fret board with my left hand
2. Learn a new strumming style

This is what I will do:
Practice 10 minutes for 10 days in a row
1. Climb up and down the fret board for 5 minutes
2. Do the bossa nova strum for 5 minutes

Sun is shining, weather is sweet.  It is really nice for November.  Good day to practice fret runs.  I’m too concerned with speed, so I need to get the notes hitting better.

Day 4:

Strengths –
My fingers seem to be getting stronger.  I can certainly feel them working in a way I’ve never done before.

Weaknesses –
I’m still not hitting the notes clearly all the time. Plus when I am doing the strum I get off the metronome (now set at 112 bpm) almost all the time.  Still doing that.

Opportunities –
I have an opportunity to focus on really pressing down my left hand to really articulate the note.   I have to be less concerned with how fast I am playing but how well I am playing.  I also lose myself on the upper frets.

Threats –
Not showing up. This is a personal commitment to getting better. The only threat is that I stop. Hand cramps are real. Stretch that shit.  Doubly real on Day 4.

Please let me know in the comments how I can get better! Thank you!
