Well, hey-hey! It’s been a good day to play some music, I can tell you that.
a) I got a cool weekly email, detailing my accomplishments of last week. For instants: I played for 352 minutes and earned 46 gold stars – 93 stars in total – and finished 7 tasks. Cool beans.
b) I didn’t want to practice at all tonight, but then I couldn’t resist the call of the White Lady, and succumbed to her. And it was good – because…
…like it was nothing. Seriously. 4 days after starting this. Not too shabby, eh… in fact, in hindsight this wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be based on the big deal that was made around this song in the FB group. A challenge, don’t get me wrong… but my expectations based on what I read raised this up on a level that in the end it really wasn’t on. Either way – on to further challenges…
c) …the weekly challenges, for one. “Cafe Olvido” (Lead Level 2) & “Yellowstone” (Rhythm Level 4) – as well as some dappling in the Lead Level 6 challenge without any results.
d) I gold starred some more stuff, too: Rhythm Path Level 5, Mission: Broken Chords: “Hammer Song”; Mission: Strumming Challenge: “Dame Mas Reggae”, “Stardomite”, “Robot Walk”. Yay!
e) I reached Level 6!!! Woo-hoo!!!
(Unfortunately I took the screenshot a few minutes after midnight, so my stars reset – but I was told I tripled my daily goal today.)
