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