My fourth guitar lesson has shown so improvement in my limited abilities, this pleases me. John really is exceptionally patient with me, and very positive about my progress. I want to get a lot of practice this week so that I can surprise him next week with a marked improvement in my skills. My fingers are getting used to the stretches they need to do, and I have finally managed to keep my thumb out of the way of the strings. At least I can’t get any worse!
Thankfully, John seemed happy enough with how I am progressing with the guitar. I was late to this class, as the traffic was crazy and I had received a phone call that I could not ignore just as I was leaving the house. I enjoy practising with my guitar, it is fun. There can be a lot to simultaneously remember, but, I am sure that one day, I will discover I am just playing something. That’s the plan anyway.
My second guitar lesson was held this week. Thankfully, I did improve. I did make some simple mistakes, which John says are easy to rectify, which is good to hear. I am still enjoying it. I have some chromatic exercises to practice this week too. The classes are 30 minutes long, but, they feel like 2 minutes. John is a great and patient teacher, which I appreciate greatly, he seemed happy enough with my progress. I do feel a little silly sometimes, as all the other students are children (or at least the ones that I see). I know adults also use this Music School. This week was also marked by me buying more plectrums and a little plectrum holder.
