I made, what I think, is some real progress this week with my guitar. For whatever reason, I was able to push passed where I’ve been plateaued for awhile now.
It was like I could ignore the fact that I couldn’t keep up fully with the speed of the song and instead of that upsetting me, I just tried harder.
I’m learning Green Day’s Good Riddance (The Time of Your Life). We learned it in guitar class in high school, but I doubt we were playing it at full speed because it was pretty fast to play along with the YouTube video.
Even though I kept messing up and it probably sucked, I had fun and felt like I’m on the way to improving.
And that’s how life’s river flows today.
Psst… If you’re in Ottawa and looking for something to do this Monday, March 26, 2018, one of my plays is being read by actors for a fund raiser. Some of my classmate’s plays will be read too. It’s all happening at 6pm at Algonquin College in room N112. The cost is $5. There will also be some baked goods available for purchase.
