I think I gave myself 3 blisters today. One for sure because it's visible, and possibly two more that are hidden deep under the skin.

Yesterday, I made a practice schedule out through the end of September 2014. Then I read that your learning time either expands or contracts to fill the time you've allotted yourself to learn  said thing. Based on that, I'm going to revise the schedule as I go along to try to push myself to get things done more quickly.

However, like today, when pushing myself I quickly see what my limits are. And they are short. Very, very short.

I need to work on trills with rt hand 1&2 exercises for Chaconne.


  1. I have this Complete Idiot’s Guide To Playing The Bass. I decided that I would set a goal for the year end. The next day, I decided to go as far as I could each day in the time I had for that day, and trashed the goal. Yesterday was devoted to an interview of a bass playing associate at Guitar Center and the acquisition of a headphone ‘amp’. Mj is happy she will not be able to hear anything ;o)

  2. "Trashed" as in "gave up" or "blew out of the water"?
