My hat goes off to all those wonderful music teachers out there who can listen with patience and good cheer to budding musicians practicing. It must be torture.
Today’s 5 minute practice compares to a little kid banging on the piano. It’s done with enthusiasm, but very little technique. I attempt diaphragmatic breathing, single note scales, note bends, and chugging (chords, not beer).
Warning: may be painful at times to listen to.
I recorded this with my Edirol R-09HD stereo recorder in my lap. I like the simplicity and quality of this little recorder.
It’s easy to carry around and use anywhere. It records WAV or MP3 files to a SD card. So, transferring the recordings to the computer is a snap. I made three recordings and edited pieces from each together into the finished composite using Audacity.
