Cello practice this week: not enough
I think I have managed to practice for 2 hours, and haven't added new pieces. I tried a different fingering for GoT, alternating 2nd and 4th position. I am getting more comfortable in higher positions lately.
It's been a busier week than most, meaning less time for side projects. The CEO of the company I work for died in an accident, which has had some repercussions at the job. Also he was a cool guy, so it made me kind of down. Then I bought a new car which has taken up a lot of time and energy. On a positive note, the car will help me get to cello lessons if I decide to start taking some, so it could pay off eventually.
Practiced Game of Thrones and Lilium. After so long I was glad that I mostly remembered and kept to the fingering I had been using for Game of Thrones - though I think I need to change some of it. I also found myself using 4th position fairly naturally a couple times on Lilium which I had never attempted before, so playing with different positions is starting to sink in. Band practice didn't happen this week, which was sad.
Twice through Think of Me and some intensive on the final run section. It's a really fun song to play!
I'm down to one day a week and I'm fine with that for now. My skills probably aren't improving much, but if I miss a one week that becomes 2 and then 3 and then next thing I know I have gone 5 years without playing and lost all of my skills! Let's not let that happen again mkay?
The search for an instructor is currently delayed as stuffs going on lately. Maybe august.
Played Game of Thrones and Phantom of the Opera for fun. Worked a bit harder on Think of Me, especially the difficult run and high note at the end of the song. Not up to speed there but getting close.
Camping trip and bad sunburn from said trip made it hard to get something for this lol.
I've been sick, so only 2 days of practice. Still keeping it going though!
2 days of normal practice - still working on Game of Thrones mostly and a few other pieces. Every time I try GoT I use a different fingering. I'm still not positive what I like best, but I think I'm close to pulling out a pencil and making some choices lol.
1 other day of improv trying to figure out some metal chords - unsuccessfully. But it was fun, which currently is the point.
