    Hey Guys,

    After seeing everyone at SF Ukefest Priya and I tried to push ourselves and learn a bunch of new songs. Here are two and a half. The first song is called “Carrying you” (https://youtu.be/RPt2Ruwx3dg) from Castle in the sky and the second is “My Neighbor Totoro” (https://youtu.be/DexQq2ygIPk). The last song, “A Thousand Times” (https://youtu.be/K9FILAkKinQ) we haven’t completed yet but we thought to include as a bonus.

    My main question is how to elevate these first two songs to the next level. You talked a few weeks back about how the version of Europa that is on the site doesn’t even come close to the real Europa that you play. Now that I’ve learned these songs how do I crank them up? I think a great example is this rendition of a song by the same composer performed by Corey Fujimoto.

    P.S. Priya loved how you used the Sailor moon theme as an intro to one of your songs at SF Ukefest.

    I forgot to mention the video I just posted wasn’t meant for a review. It was more of to track my progress.

    WHY IS THIS SO HARD TO TEACH ALDRINE? WHY?! Haha.

    This stage of learning music is so mildly infuriating because I know the secret is just to play more songs and gradually try more complex songs. It is so gratifying to learn a new song and I can tell I’ve grown because most songs Priya hands me I can breakdown really quickly.

    I think I just need more patience.
