Practice while hiking

Tuesday, December 3, 2019 @8:07:42 AM

I've been working up a clawhammer arrangement of Amazing Grace on the Ukulele.  I'm also practicing The Galaxy Song on Ukulele, which I plan to perform at the open mic on Thursday.

On my hikes I'm still memorizing the sharps and flats in each major key.  I know them OK forward, so I've started learning them backwards (The key of D is D, C#, B, A, G, F#, E, and back to D).  I practice that on the way up the hill when I don't have enough breath to sing.  On the way down the hill, if there's nobody near me on the path, I practice singing songs.
