I had a really relaxing weekend in Charlotte, but didn't carry around my camera. It was raining as I was about to leave and I figured I should grab a handstand before I left or I would regret it. Here is a lame Charlotte handstand. We'll have to get a better one when I go back :-)
How far can someone go without learning to read sheet music? Well… I’m still going but I guess I haven’t gone too far. I know “F.A.C.E” for treble clef, that’s about as far as it goes. My brother got me a book that should help me learn but I have been too stubborn so far to use it.
Anyways, I have been told that I have the tendency to go flat when singing. Last night I felt like I began to get past that. About a 2 hour singing/guitar/piano session and I was doing much better. I heard the notes in my head, before anything came out of my mouth, and I was able to hit notes that are usually a struggle for me. Previously I’d do my best first shot, and then to try and “climb” up to reach them when I realized I wasn’t right on.
Whats the point? -> Well, It seems like a “duh” moment, but I believe I have had an epiphany where if I conciously picture the note in my head before letting it come out of my mouth, it works. That’s all. Anyone do something similar?
