Ha ha. Good point Alan. On the list of time wasters taking time away from practicing, this forum falls way down on the list. Maybe "the cafe" is a little higher on that list.ashepps wrote: ↑Tue May 09, 2017 1:06 amRick,
Since you posted this as a retorical question, I wonder how many hours have been lost since your first post on April 27th?
It's a matter of doing as much as you can now. I find we get so caught up in discussion that our practice time has been replaced by reading and responding time among many other distractions.
I really love this forum and is indespensible at times.
The above, of course, is just my opinion and that it is great to be involved.
I do see where I have lost so much time over the past 3 years and to make it clear, not the time here at the forum reading posts and replying etc., but it can be time consuming.
I am 68 and feel that I have really only put in about one year of practice since I got back into guitar 3 years ago. I just have to do things differently and I am trying hard to get my act in gear!
I am going to leave this thread now and get back to some practicing!
Cheers - Alan
I've been reducing my sessions to less than 45 minutes 2 or 3 times a day. When I can get one in early in the morning I have a good day. Afternoons are tough. But later in the evening is my best time to work on new or fun stuff. Unless there is hockey on TV. It's Stanley cup playoff time and my team is in it (Go Ducks go) so practice time is down a bit.
Any relation to Alan Shepherd the astronaut? He was my local almost hometown hero as a kid.
With that I am going to practice Sons de Carillhoes, the final exam piece for DO 5.
