    Picked up practice again after a little break.

    – Pinky mutes + practice on Lovesong, No woman no cry and Over the rainbow
    – Playing the songs I know

    25-10

    Picked up my practice again, feels good.

    Currently my focus is on:
    – Allowing music to flow gently, relaxed and from the heart
    – Finding balance betwee working on techniques/improving and flowing

    I will continue learnign the songs I am learning and uke 101 recap. Also make the homework from the last time and see if I can be creative with my fingerpicking/playing along with my recording.

    When got all this down I will just spend some time recapping things, having fun and orienting myself toward a new goal.

    Woohoo! Can play and Sing Along with Island in the Sun by Weezer. Also did some improvisation with strumming and noticed my Rhytm and foot tapping. 1/2 notes and everything goes really well, I just gotta let go and follow the groove then everything finds its way!

    So next time also play lovesong and try singing with it. Perhaps first sing along, then play along and then sing and play along. Good riddince is also next up. Once I got these downs I feel like moving on my homework of uke101 and start with the next lesson.

    Also, I want to include the ‘letting go, just having fun vibe’ in my practice sessions. Probably something like:
    – play/sing along with a song and/or improvise, create something my own or just play whatever
    – learn and practice a technique, new song, picking/strumming pattern, whatever
    – improve a technique/song that I already know, but work on speed/fluency/form
    – finish with a song/having fun

    Realized I can also play bob marley no woman nc cry and practiced love song. Can play it almost entirely! Tomorrow practicing Good Riddince and recapping love song. Maybe also progress to the next lesson of uke 101. I should also work on the next grip before learning new songs with barre cords and such.

    Some things to work on:

    – Noticing the foot tapping / Rhytm
    – Don’t hold back too much
    – Have fun 😉

    Questions for feedback:
    – Difference picking and fingerpicking? And why do we angor with more fingers with picking? (Check week 5 uke 101)
    – How to hold the uke steady while switching cords

    See if I can get a private lesson to cover some of the things I am struggeling with in learning songs and writing these down.

    Practiced ‘Love song’ strumming pattern and the cords in order. Continue with this and try the fingerpicking.

    Also played Heaven and I want to try singing with this song next time, just like Another Day in Paradise.

    Practiced the Cure love song. Next time work on the pinky lift and practice Good riddince. Also try to play a song.

    I want to do 3 things:
    1. Learn something entirely new
    2. Practice something that is recently new and parts that I am struggeling with in songs
    3. Perfectionize some songs I can already play completely

    This is what my practice should consist of, starting tomorrow:
    – warmup song 5 min
    – new song/lesson practice 10 min
    – specific technique/song part practice 10 min
    – fintune some songs 5 min

    Also learned the first part of ‘love song’ by the Cure. Work on pinky mute and cord progression first, then the picking patterns.

    #27047

    18-09

    Practiced Good Riddance, specifically focussing on the cord switches and landing my fingers at the same time. Pretty challenging on the G and cadd9.

    This will be my main focus upcoming times. Then when that goes right include the fingerpicking and gradually speed up once I got it.

    Oh yeah and before practicing a song just listen and feel the rhytm. Figure out in what speed it is etc.
