It’s time, to be honest with you all. This last week has been fairly unproductive in my Banjo practice.
If my progress is a reflection of my effort, and I think that it is, I seriously need to kick it up a notch (or five)!
My plan: PRACTICE HARD! This site has some great tips to use for making practice time more effective (it’s like it was made for me). I am going to double my previously determined (before I knew what I was getting myself into) practice time for the next couple of weeks.
This isn’t going to be easy, but I really want to do it because I really love the banjo and I know that I will love it even more once I can actually play something… especially if it’s like this:
I thought back to my early piano playing years when practicing felt like nothing but a chore. I do not want to fall into the same pattern with the banjo, so I went looking for inspiration. What I discovered is awesome… playing the banjo may actually make my brain work better!
I am driven and I am inspired. I will progress this week. I will practice with all my heart and I will master this fantastic instrument one day. I truly believe this… even if it is potentially unrealistic. But hey, unwarranted confidence can be a good tool for success!
Please feel free to cast your vote or leave a comment with some musical stories of your own! I would love to hear from you.
Until next time… stay inspired in whatever area you may be struggling with!
