Frustration !!!

Sunday, February 1, 2009

I was getting frustrated with my progress and the overwhelming number of things I was trying to learn, all at the same time.

I found an article, while re-reading an old  BNL, about frustration written by Ian Perry.

One of his suggestions was, "keep practicing".  If you make a list of what to practice every day you don't have to decide what to work on when you sit down.

So, my list will be:  practice scales,  rolls for at least 15 minutes,  new licks at slow speed,  starting at 40 bpm and increasing speed each day.

Basicly, getting back to basics.  It worked when I used to play golf.  Now, talk about frustration.
