May 2: D to Fmaj7
I need to practise D to Fmaj7. And G to D. Just D in general, I think.
My throat feels like it’s all scratched up, so I should probably take an allergy pill today.
I played my songs. I played mountain king.
It’s been ten months since I started learning guitar. I’m not a beginner anymore, but I certainly don’t feel like I’m at the intermediate level yet.
May 3: Same thing
I feel like I say the same thing over and over again.
I guess that’s what practise is, right?
Mountain king will not defeat me. I will get this song.
I played my three songs. I got a little too enthusiastic regarding the third song, and now my arm hurts quite a bit. Ibuprofen is my friend.
May 4: Missed
No post was written on this day :'(
May 5: Challenge
There was a new challenge song today: “La Llorona.”
My daughter recognized it as one of the songs from Coco, which made me happy, both because we haven’t watched that in a while and because it was recognizable enough.
Then I played sugar plum fairy and mountain king, passably well.
I only played “Get to Know You” of my songs because my shoulder was starting to hurt.
Husband bought me a pretty awesome mother’s day gift that will hopefully help with that. I can’t wait to try it out. Pictures will be taken.
In other news, Thank you to those who already voted for Assassins! Accidental Matchmakers on the Goodreads lists! I can already see our cover on several of the banners (which means that it’s within the top five on those lists!) It would be really cool if we could get it onto all the banners!
P.S. You can only vote on a computer! But you can add our book to your “want to read” lists on mobile! 🙂
May 6: Short
I didn’t play much today. My shoulder hurts now.
I did mountain king. Not very well, though.
I played “Get to Know You” twice and the wedding song once. My middle finger’s callus split a bit and it was hurting to play, so I stopped at that point.
Also, please vote for Assassins! in the Goodreads lists! Thank you!
May 7: Stressful
The kids were, I’ll use the phrase “high-spirited,” today.
Which meant I was rather stressed.
My husband suggested I try practising guitar to calm down.
Yeah, that didn’t particularly help.
I played mountain king. It actually went fairly well, considering I’d forgotten to turn on the volume on my phone so I couldn’t hear the song through the app.
I also played “Get to Know You” twice.
Let’s hope tomorrow is better.
I love my kids I love my kids I love my kids
May 8: Pretty good day
I had a lovely day so far. The kids played nicely together and we brought up some of their big toys from the basement (a ball pit, tunnel, tent combo that they love but is too big to be out all the time, and a giant Yoshi that is, well, giant). They had fun with those.
I was hoping the new thing would be in today (it’s out for delivery) before I played guitar, but it didn’t make it here in time unfortunately.
Mountain king went better than usual today.
I played “Get to Know You” twice, pausing in the middle to change a dirty diaper (not mine, just to be clear 🤣). Then I played the wedding song.
I definitely play the ballad the least, mostly because it’s the most strenuous on my shoulder, but partially because I play them in the order I wrote them. 🤷🏼♀️
