In better news…
Guitar practice time = awesome. 5 hours in the past 8 days! Woo! High-Five, P! Large improvement over my previous 45 minutes, plus I exceeded my 3 hour goal. And I've really been enjoying it. I feel a noticeably different energy with the guitar--kind of like the lid blew off. I'm not a whiz kid, but I feel like things are on the verge of clicking. I like that.
Narrative evidence of progress: I've been practicing when Chris is home. I never liked to do this. (I still don't really like it, but it bothers me less.) Although he is contractually obligated to love and support me, it still embarrasses me to have ANYONE (contractual obligations or not) hear my crap.
Scheduled free time: Ehh… No.
Song Development: I've been working on 2 new ones. Guitar parts are a lot more dynamic than any previous song, which is cool. Vocal lines are a lot more elusive, however, which is less cool.
Goals for the next 10 days:
1. Log another 5 hours of practice time (including the nonsensical drills that I play for you in the vlog).
2. Scratch out a vocal line for one of the 2 originals.
3. Decide on 1 song to cover (Right now I have 4 in mind.) and start figuring it out.
And now, here is the v-log. Again, so sorry.

Over and out. 10-4.
