Thanks Gab,

The book deals with reaching your goals, coping with the ups and downs and how to focus energy and time into achieving them. I know you've achieved a lot with Cirse and your studio etc but, the reason I recommend this kind of thing to tutors is that it can help them tackle students' issues that they, themselves (the tutor) may not have come across before. As you know, I train people at work and I can always learn from them, I'm never too qualified to learn from a trainee, whether it's about the way they approach their challenges or if they come up with a way of doing something that I'd never thought of. Every day is a school day for me, one way or another and I often pass things on to other trainees that I have picked up from another. Trainees very often inspire me.

HERE is the book lowdown wink.gif

Speak very soon buddy.


I thought I should give you a recording of my "singing" from day 1. This was so embarrassing to record and even more embarrassing to post laugh.gif laugh.gif I know singing is really a whole different ball game but for this training, we can call it that. This is just to see if this is how you want things done. I'm just doing C and D for now, I didn't do C D C just C D.



The book sounds sounds very interesting! Thanks for sharing. smile.gif

I'll give you feedback on each update in order. In this first singing audio, I notice that your pitch is very good when singing with Piano, but your second note gets a bit higher. Let's see what happens in the following samples.

Further to the above post, here is tonight's ear training. I'm using the tuner to help when I'm not hitting the keys but, I am trying to hit the note first before looking, I found the E the hardest to get without the piano.


Based on the last take (without piano), you are getting D note better. E note definitely needs work because it's far from the right pitch in this take. Checking the new take now...

Further to the two posts above hear is tonight's session. I am using the tuner to confirm but I am finding that I am getting closer sooner, if that makes sense wink.gif


And without keyboard.




Great! I can hear that your D and E notes are sounding good over Piano. E, and F needs more practice when singing alone. I have to say that this training has been a great decision! Be patient, and keep on practising. smile.gif

Thanks Gab,

I've been away for a couple of days to the city where Robbie Williams was born and stayed over for the night. Yesterday we went HERE, which is a stunning place on a sunny day, there are many of THESE sculptures dotted around the gardens which were enchanting and took me back to being a big kid again laugh.gif , we also went HERE which was brilliant, a couple of parent monkeys walked practically over my feet with a very young baby and then sat down close by watching the baby play, it was brilliant.

Today we went HERE and had a ride on a steam train, it's great to hear those engines doing their paradiddles and working hard going up the gradients. The after lunch we went HERE.

Back to my practise. Obviously I'm still working on my blues guitar work, it's coming along slowly, I've noodled exclusively with the G shape pentatonic forever so it's a bit of a struggle to get the other shape to be so fluid along with the new shape not being as finger friendly, for me anyway.

Tonight I managed to go all the way up to A, kind of wink.gif For the most part, the initial note that came out kept the needle on the screen of my TM-50 displaying the correct note but on a lot of the notes the needle was all the way left or right, when I got to A and B, I was out of the zone. Definitely getting better though. I'll post less frequently now. I posted all of those so that you could get a feel for how far off my ear is.
